Creating Course Subjects/Category


I’ve been looking a way to categorize courses in open edx.

I don’t think the current open edx version supports tagging or categorizing. However, the edx website has been using this feature for a while, so if there’s any solution for this, I’d be really grateful for them.

I’m using ironwood master version. Many thanks!


What you’re asking for has more to do with a “marketing site” than the learning experience in itself. We (at built an open-source project to make course search and marketing websites in front of Open edX, which has extensive categorization capabilities, integrated with its search engine.

You can find it on GitHub ( If you’re interested in using it and need some pointers, you can reach me on the Open edX slack :wink:
