3. Manage your Organizations

An organization (Org) is a key record that is created and maintained at the platform level, but is linked to an LMS site and defines what courses appear on that site.

Courses created in organization “X” will appear on the LMS site that has the organization X associated with it. Users with permission to create courses with certain organizations(ORGs) will see a list (or only one org) to select, when creating a course in Studio.

The organization will help build the course ID, a unique identifier for an Open edX course.

While many platforms will only have One organization, there are some advantages of having multiple organizations in order to better to organize your course catalog. It’s also possible to configure a different certificate template for each organization.

You’ll be able to manage the Organizations for your platform in the eduNEXT Control Center by navigating to the My Platform section and the ORGS tab.
