Unleash the Power of Drupal with OpenEdu

OpenEDU is a powerful Drupal-based framework built for higher education. Every university has unique technological constraints, branding messaging, and user experience needs. A great framework realizes that. A smart framework helps you to bypass the need for extensive manpower and budget to get an amazing website up and running.


OpenEDU is technologically intelligent, user-friendly and ready-to-go. It delivers more than just a base to start with - it empowers you with endless opportunities to customize and deliver a web environment as unique and functional as your educational system.

These features were developed at ImageX Media for the OpenEDU framework.

Due to licensing problems, two contrib modules are required to be downloaded manually:

  1. HybridAuth Social Login
  2. Views Isotope

Intelligent Coding. Smart Delivery

    Out of the box, OpenEdu will save developers incredible time and effort kickstart a school’s website by providing the base code needed to:

    • Restrict authorship privileges to meet IT governance needs
    • Publish custom calendars
    • Integrate course catalogues
    • Produce JSON files for mobile apps
    • Upcoming OpenEDU Features
