Monthly OpenCraft newsletter

We at OpenCraft publish a monthly email newsletter that features news about our team, our projects, and what’s happening in the Open edX community. Each newsletter also features the recap of a blog post that we’ve published. I’ll share the content of these newsletters in this thread, every month.

We’ve recently started archiving our newsletters by turning them into blog posts, so I’m sharing the ones we’ve archived so far. You can also subscribe to receive our newsletter by going to our blog and filling out a short form. Cheers!
