Podcast: edX: A Breakthrough in Online Learning

Speaker: Anne Margulies, Chief Information Officer, Harvard University

Harvard and MIT joined forces to launch edX, an open online platform aimed at improving teaching through research and expanding access to quality education around the world. After decades of mixed results in online learning across higher education, edX represents an extraordinary partnership that will bring some of the best professors in the world to students around the globe. We will discuss the historic context that set the stage for this effort and the ways this model will shape online learning in the years ahead.
