About Us. We're empowering learning in the classroom and around the globe
At edX, we believe in the highest quality education, both online and in the classroom.
EdX was created for students and institutions that seek to transform themselves through cutting-edge technologies, innovative pedagogy, and rigorous courses.
Through our institutional partners, the Xconsortium, along with other leading global members, we present the best of higher education online, offering opportunity to anyone who wants to achieve, thrive, and grow.
Our goals, however, go beyond offering courses and content. We are committed to research that will allow us to understand how students learn, how technology can transform learning, and the ways teachers teach on campus and beyond.
As innovators and experimenters, we want to share what we discover. The edX platform will be avai...
With all of the press attention on massive open online courses (MOOCs), you may be wondering how OCW is faring in this new and more complicated digital learning environment. We're pleased to share that the OCW site has been receiving record traffic in the last few months. In July 2013 alone, we received 3 million visits from 2 million individuals, a near-doubling of traffic from the previous year. We're thrilled to see MITx and other MOOC providers creating new learning opportunities using emerging digital technologies, and we see these courses as an important complement to OCW.
OCW, though, continues to bring unique value to educators and learners worldwide, and we remain deeply committed to our mission of sharing educational content taken directly from MIT classrooms. With more than 2,180 courses now represented on the site, OCW provides a broad view into the MIT curriculum...

iversity.org is a platform for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). MOOCs offer unprecedented opportunities for students and professors alike. We believe that open courses can make a difference by enabling students from all over the world to take courses from professors all over the world. Conversely open courses enable professors to extend their reach by teaching tens of thousands of students worldwide.
Access to education can both vastly improve people’s lives and bring about real change to communities as a whole. This is why our courses are free to everyone. This is also why our course offerings are constantly expanding and cover a range of subjects that include medicine, computer science, economics, physics, law, design and philosophy.
We work in close cooperation with instructors, universities and knowledge-based companies to build high-quality courses that are eng...
The Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL) supports OpenEdX as part of its commitment to advance creative teaching and learning initiatives and data-driven educational research.
OpenEdX is the open-source release of the edX platform developed by the non-profit organization founded by Harvard and MIT. In April 2013 Stanford and edX agreed to collaborate on future development of the edX platform.
Stanford launched its own instance (Stanford OpenEdX) and our engineers have contributed new functionality to the open-source software, including real-time chat, bulk email, new installation scripts, operations tools and integration with external survey tools.
In July 2013 the platform was released as open source for developers everywhere to use, improve, and share.
In September 2013, Google committed to the development of OpenEdX, and to offer a hos...
Learning is a pretty great thing. When the people who provide and participate in it can interact in new, imaginative ways, it gets even better.
Canvas Network gives teachers, learners and institutions alike the place and platform to define the world of open online learning in a way that makes sense for everyone. It grows as teachers and learners apply it in individual ways and then share the results with the world.
Built on the same Canvas platform that millions already use to learn every day, Canvas Network will grow to be a gathering place for the open online courses, communities and collections that millions more will be able to use to evolve learning to meet their goals.
So take a course. Teach a course. Explore. Imagine.
Discover learning materials in an Open Space.
View and share free educational material in small modules that can be organized as courses, books, reports or other academic assignments.
OpenStax believes that everyone has something to learn, and everyone has something to teach.
Frustrated by the limitations of traditional textbooks and courses, Dr. Richard Baraniuk founded OpenStax (then Connexions) in 1999 at Rice University to provide authors and learners with an open space where they can share and freely adapt educational materials such as courses, books, and reports.
Today, OpenStax CNX is a dynamic non-profit digital ecosystem serving millions of users per month in the delivery of educational content to improve learning outcomes.
There are tens of thousands of learning objects, called pages, that are organized into thousands of textbook-style books ...
