IBL augments the open-source Open edX software by adding an enhanced UI, AI-driven analytics, discovery portal, social learning, e-commerce, and marketing tools, along with other innovations. Over 30+ global enterprise integrations have been built this way.
From IBL News to the IBL Platform. IBL originally began as IBL News in the early days of the Internet in 1997, a year before Google had launched. Our goal then was to inform and educate audiences on new technologies. IBL has always done a good job on reporting and continues to do so today.

In the realm of education, IBL started in early 2020 delivering learning initiatives by integrating Moodle, Sakai and Blackboard, among other existing platforms. We felt that those technologies fell short, so we began developing our own software. In 2013, MIT, Harvard University, and Stanford released the first high-quality open-source learning platform, Open edX. We specialized in it, becoming the leading provider in the U.S.. Our organization, based in New York, was the first one using this software for a big university: George Washington University.

Later on, as we built the IBL Platform on top of the Open edX code, we started to serve other large institutions such as SUNY, NYU, The University of Illinois, and MIT. IBL has also been supporting leading brands in the industry who needed to improve their training programs, such as Tesla, Cisco, IBM, and NVIDIA, just to name a few. Overall, the IBL Platform serves over 800,000 learners.

Experience IBL as a Learner

We’re founded on the engagement and usability principles that the underlying edX software has used to attract over 22 million learners to date. The focus is on helping you learn in a way that is enjoyable and efficient.

Behind the scenes it’s about customized dashboards as well as beautiful video, content and a robust social experience with your instructors and peers.

Experience IBL as a Content Creator

At your disposal you’ll have the exact same built-in course creation tools that allowed all kinds of organizations on edX to achieve hundreds of thousands of enrollments.

It’s all about quality, usability and accessibility that you can produce reliably and quickly. Certainly no programming experience required.

Manage and the course and student data in your platform from easy-to-use interfaces that make it easy for you to distribute instructor responsibilities and understand everything about your learners.
