Some basic questions and links

In my first post, I asked a few basic beginner questions. Here are a few links I found that helped:

Is this course from the NRC or edX or Open edX or LPSS? All of the above? And how do they relate to each other?

NRC is behind Stephen Downes’ research, and hence, this course. They are also the source for LPSS.

edX is a non-profit MOOC provider. Wikipedia lists them among the “Notable Providers.” Here’s a list comparing it with four other free MOOC platforms. Here’s a longer list of MOOC providers.

Open edX is the open source platform that powers edX courses.”

I still don’t know what to compare LPSS with.

To add a question, is it just me, or does anyone else feel that you need an inordinate number of mouse clicks  to find what you need on the course website?
