10. Test Platforms


Open edX creators offer a sandbox website intended as a playground for students and course authors. It has a demo course, and it is rebuilt every week with the latest version. This means that if you create a course on the sandbox on a given week, it will not necessarily be there by the next.

To log in to an account with the Admin role, you can use the following credentials.

As a student, these user accounts allow you to enroll in the demo course into the audit, honor code, or verified certificate tracks.

Another possibility is to use the edX Studio tool without installing it from scratch by contacting IBL –we can give you access to our test platform. Two pluses: we won’t delete your test courses every week and we will give you initial instructions about how you can build them.
