This event has now concluded. View the recording here!

edX is building a world where every person can change their life through education. And they chose Algolia to help. With more than 42 million learners and over 3,000 course offerings, the edX product team is constantly looking to improve the way they connect learners with the right educational courses. Naturally, the search experience is a key piece of the puzzle.

Digital expert Stephen Tiszenkel, Senior Product Manager at edX, joins us to share how he and his team use Algolia to help learners find the courses they are looking for, and how a search and discovery experience helps edX grow both the B2C and B2B sides of their organization.

Steve will chat about...

  • Why edX switched search platforms and what led them to choose Algolia
  • How they use Algolia features such as AI-reranking and custom rules 
  • The incredible results seen after implementation - including a 50% increase in lead capture overnight!
  • And how the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digital transformation in the ed-tech industry
