Graspway and the Open edX team have been partners since 2019 and this is the second time they have been sponsors of the conference. The 2021 Open edX Conference is a virtual event in which the Open edX community and leading experts in ed-tech discuss the latest research, new approaches to learning, and the best practices for integrating new technology into the virtual classroom.
This year’s virtual conference will focus on shaping the future of education together.

Attendees will learn about innovative uses of technology within the areas of Pedagogy & Instructional Design, Platform & Product and Extensions & Integrations.

All together, we are building a global e-learning service for everyone”, says Javier Viñuales, Partner Manager at OpenSistemas and LMS Product Expert.
