The University of Queensland (UQ) is a premier Australian tertiary education institution, headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland. A member of the prestigious “Group of 8”, UQ has established itself as a destination of choice for both domestic and international students pursuing a higher education. The University has over 53,000 enrolled students and over 7,500 staff across its three campuses: St Lucia, Herston, and Gatton. Each year, UQ welcomes over 19,000 new students.
The University of Queensland (UQ) seeks offers for the supply of development and operational services for the implementation of an Open edX instance and for ongoing maintenance of the instance for 12 months. Upon satisfactory completion of the initial period, UQ may seek to renew the contract for ongoing operation and maintenance on an annual basis.
The University requires a UQ owned and themed instance of the Open EdX platform that will allow for seamless single sign-on, graded assessment tools and integrated capabilities to support asynchronous collaboration and communication. The new instance will also cater for the planned increased use of the platform as more courses create online content in Open edX.
