Now, this forum is in open beta mode. “We still have some things to figure out, and it’s not quite ready for prime time,” said an edX representative. It will be officially launched in August.

This posting board, which can be also used as a mailing list, is structured by topics. For now, there are Frontend UI/UX, Science of Learning, Community Connections, Announcements, Development, DevOps, and Jobs.
