Research output: Other contribution


On Sept. 10, Google and edX announced a partnership to “jointly develop the edX open source learning platform, Open edX, and expand the availability of the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) platform and its learning tools to individuals and institutions around the world.” Google, which announced its own Course Builder MOOC-like open source code base for platform development last year, said this action met its goal of “making education more accessible through technology, and enabling educators to easily teach at scale on top of cloud platform services.” The partnership will open MOOC creation tools on a single site for any interested MOOC developer rather than relying on edX’s course offerings to a broader development community and its partner institutions.
