Obojobo Next

All Contributors

Obojobo Next is a modern educational content ecosystem. Obojobo documents are programmable, extend-able, and heavily fortified with data analytics.

Our focus is on making and delivering fantastic learning content to students. Obojobo is not a Learning Management System. Rather, it's an incredibly powerful content engine for use inside your LMS.

The Obojobo Mission

To keep our collective efforts aimed in the same direction, we've outlined what we want Obojobo to be:

  1. UI/UX focused design that ensures a satisfying & enjoyable student experience.
  2. Low barrier of entry for content creators. Creating content is as easy as writing a document in Word.
  3. Research centric design. Obojobo aims to be the premiere research-enabling learning platform by providing high resolution data, partnering with researchers, and including proven research outcomes back into the platform.
  4. Extraordinary practice and assessment tools that enable emerging teaching and learning models.
  5. Provide innovative new capabilities in online, blended, and mixed mode courses.
  6. Architecturally extensible and modular. Obojobo Next is easy to customize and extend.


Quick Heroku Deploy

We added Heroku support as an easy way to give Obojobo a free test drive (or scale it up for production use).

Deploy Obojobo to Heroku

Heroku is a cloud service that lets you host web apps in the cloud without having to worry so much about the infrastructure.

Development Setup

  1. Clone this repo
  2. Run yarn install to install dependencies
  3. Run yarn db:rebuild to setup the database in a Docker container
  4. Run yarn dev to start the development express server
  5. Visit - You should see "Welcome to Obojobo Next"

Familiarize yourself with the scripts section of package.json.

Dev Shortcuts has a bunch of links that'll simulate all of the LTI integrations Obojobo supports. Use these to quickly log in and test out the different launch modes.

This route is only available in development mode. In production, the only way to log in is through an LTI launch from an LMS.
