There is no hard limit on the number of courses, registered users, and concurrent users in the platform.
In the Elemental plan, high levels of activity may impact site performance. This usually depends on how many users are trying to perform a certain activity at the same time.
In higher plans, the platform will adapt to the increase in the demand, escalating to virtually unlimited users, courses and simultaneous access.
AWS Hosting in Certified Infrastructure
All our plans are hosted in the AWS Cloud. At Aulasneo we are AWS Partners, within the ISV (Independent Service Vendors) route. We have reached this level of partnership after completing the FTR (AWS Foundational Technical Review) with an AWS solution architect.
This verification process certifies that our Open edX solution mounted on the AWS cloud meets all the requirements of the AWS Well Architectured Framework, whose 6 pillars are: Operational Excellence Pillar, Security Pillar, Reliability Pillar, Performance Efficiency Pillar, Cost Optimisation Pillar and Sustainability Pillar.
Users obtaining a passing grade will be allowed to get a course certificate. This certificate can be viewed in the platform and printed using the browser’s print functionality. Certain browsers may allow to download the certificate as a PDF document.
Discussion forums encourage students to participate and interact with peers in the platform. The benefit of using the Open edX forum are:
- Course staff can moderate forum activities
- Course-level topics are contained inside the specific course
- Component topics are inserted together with the relevant content
Use your own domain to point to the virtual campus.
Note: it does not include domain registration or DNS zone hosting. Contact us if you need any of these services.
Your logo, your colors and your font
Give the virtual campus the look that matches your brand. You can choose the top logo, favicon, primary and secondary colors, and certain background colors, as well a the font from a list of available options. Contact us if you need deeper customizations.
Create you own certificate design in HTML code. Change the colors, add a badge, select a different font, change the texts. Contact us if you need support or design services.
All our services are protected from technical issues. However, we make one backup a day of every site. If you want to restore your site to a previous state, you can roll back to the latest backup version.
Get all the information about everything in your campus with advanced analytics. We offer a basic set of dashboards covering with all the data mostly used about enrollments, courses, grades, user activity, videos viewed, etc. If you need a dedicated dashboard specific to your needs, we can do it for you. Contact us for our data analytics service.
Add you own HTML or CSS code to modify the look and feel of certain parts of the platform, like the login page, header, footer, etc.
Let your students take notes of text components inside the virtual campus. They will be able to highlight text, add comments, and see all notes in a course tab.

Native Open edX e-commerce application allows you to commercialize course seats or upgrades with a variety of purchasing options.
Note: if the native e-commerce workflow doesn’t fully meet your needs (e.g. you just want to sell your courses), try our marketing site with e-commerce integration add-on.
Initial Setup support
Although most features come out of the box, customizing Open edX to fully meet your needs can require more time than you expected, specially when your team does not have specific experience in Open edX.
Examples of this can include complex grading schemes, open response activities, timed and/or randomized exams, certificates, integrating third party components, etc.
With our set up support, we can configure Open edX for you so you can focus on your learning project while we take care of the technological complexities.
Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Once you buy a plan, you will get a unique url to access the platform, together with credentials to access as superusers. Open edX offers three main views:
- LMS: the student and teacher experience. Here is what users learn and teachers administer courses (enroll students, grade exams, view the grade book, schedule and open live sessions, etc.)
- Studio (a.k.a. CMS): the course author experience. Here is where authors can create and edit courses, add content, etc.
- Admin: a page for system-level setup.
How long does it take to activate?
After completing the required information, all standard plans can be activated in a few minutes. If your project has specific requirements, you will get an estimated time of delivery together with the commercial offering.
How many users are supported? How many simultaneous concurrent users does it support?
There are no hard limits on how many users are registered in the platform or how many concurrent users can it support. The Elemental plan is quite limited in cloud resources, so it may experience some performance degradation under extreme or peak level of activity. Basic and upper plans will automatically escalate cloud resources to absorb high volumes of users, so there is no virtual limit.
How many videos can I upload? Can I insert very long videos?
Actually videos are not stored in the platform. Instead you should use a streaming service like YouTube of Vimeo or a private storage to store your videos, and point a link to the video components in your courses. For this reason, there is no limit on how many videos are supported or how long can they be.
Most of these streaming services offer enough privacy and rights control to meet most needs. If you are concerned about how to insert videos in courses please contact us.
Why should I choose Open edX and not other popular LMS?
Open edX is the most scalable and reliable platform in the market, and also the most flexible. It will offer out of the box all the functionality to meet most of the frequent requirements of even large universities. And if there is a function that is not available, contact us to evaluate a special project.

Can I start with a plan and then upgrade to a larger one?
Yes. We will charge proportionally the difference of the two plans for the days used.
Can I downgrade to a smaller plan?
