Riga High Tech University to launch its own MOOC platform – RedEx

September 16, 2013

RedeX is a MOOC platform developed by Riga High Tech University that features technology courses designed specifically for flipped classroom interactive study.

Platform is based on OpenEdX source code and available on http://redexmooc.org

RedeX is operated by a not-for-profit RHTU enterprise, with main tasks to operate platform, to develop software modules for open source OpenEdX and to develop MOOC courses for RHTU, partner universities and corporate partners.

RedeX will allow partner universities and enterprises to control how their content is used and re-used. Partners will be free to release content with licenses that allow re-use in original form, or enable content to be revised, remixed, or redistributed without special permissions.

Corporate partners, by themselves or with support from RedeX course developers, will be able to create closed and secured corporate learning courses, benefiting MOOC’s state of the art learning techniques.

Along with offering MOOCs, platform will be used to research how students learn and how technology can transform learning–both on-campus and worldwide.

RedeX stands for Riga Educational Exchange.

OpenEdX is open source MOOC platform founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and jointly developed by Stanford University.
