@Arthur_Schneider Welcome! I’m not sure what the exact procedure is for becoming a Preferred Partner, but I see an option on the contact form at Connect - Open edX “Become an Open edX Marketplace Provider” - that might be better than the forum?

Dear @Arthur_Schneider

We cannot understand your offer and your request for verification. On your website there is no example or instruction how to integrate it on open edx and why you are contacting this open edx discussion forum? I may be wrong, but as an open edx provider we need more information. Some kind of sandbox. or something more detailed would be good. p.s. and if this is just an advertisement for your product, then this is the wrong place.

I am already a preferred provider. I was just trying to post a request that developers and educational engineers review my site and associated comment to ensure that I meet Open edX’s technical requirements. I just wanted to make sure I posted my request for review in the proper discourse category. Can you help me to see that I did this correctly?Best - Arthur
