edX is an open source learning management system (LMS) and course-authoring tool that educational institutions and private organizations can use to create massive online open courses (MOOCs) and small private online courses (SPOCs).

This book walks you through the eight essential steps you will take to create your first edX course while teaching you tools and techniques you need to know as an edX instructor. Organized sequentially, each chapter represents a stage in your curriculum development and implementation process.

We begin with an overview of MOOCs and the history of edX; detail curriculum development and video production best practices; explore options for exercises and assessments; address your course's administrative options; and then review your role as a facilitator. Lastly, we suggest a strategy to market your course with traditional tools, edX options, and social media.
