Why attend the edX Global Forum?

The edX Global Forum is an interactive, energetic conference designed to bring together the entire edX community.

Our dynamic international community is made up of educators and university leadership, cultural and learning institutions, course teams and instructional technologists, researchers, marketers, data czars, and online learning visionaries and innovators of all stripes from dozens of countries around the globe. We envision a venue where all of us share knowledge and learn from each other, and where ideas and views are exchanged. Join us so we can explore the future of education together.

This year’s edX Global Forum will be held at the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris. We plan to address an important range of topics on the stage, including:

  • Pathways to credit and credentialing for learners worldwide
  • A focus on MicroMasters and the increased interest in career-oriented outcomes
  • Ways in which universities and corporations are collaborating to offer valuable options for learners
  • The social impact that MOOCs and our partners are helping to create globally
  • Round table discussion of leading business school deans on how online learning will help to reinvent business school for the 21st century
  • Perspectives from Asia
  • reaching the growing Spanish-speaking learner market
  • And more!

This year, we will award our first ever edX Prize for Exceptional Contributions in Online Teaching and Learning to a faculty member within the edX community. We're also planning a wonderful evening event on November 15 at the Petit Palace in Paris.

We hope you can join us for this exciting event!
