Ask Nate Anything about Open edX – February 2016
This past week Appsembler hosted our second “Ask Nate Anything” webinar in which we invited anyone who wanted to learn more about the Open edX learning platform to ask anything of our CEO and edX expert (edXpert for short), Nate Aune. Once again, people all over the world submitted lots of questions. We couldn’t get to all of them, but Nate addressed many. Here is the video of the session. Scroll down to see the list of questions asked, with links to jump right to Nate’s corresponding response.
