edx-platform - Try Open EdX isntantly without deploying yourself

If you are a non-tech person or you want to have an Open edX instance to demonstrate to your community, you can try this experimental service that lets you get your very own Open edX site in seconds.

1. Go to
2. Enter your email address and click "Launch demo site"
3. Done!

Your Open edX site will remain running for 2 hours and then will be shut down. (you'll get a warning email before it expires).

The technology using on the backend is Docker ( which makes it easy to spin up new containers that use minimal resources.

This amazing website is made available thanks to Nate Aune and the people at Appsembler.
