MITx + Harvard = edX | college and career ready | Scoop.it

This is big news: Harvard and MIT form a partnership called edX that'll build on the MITx platform. Harvard plans to start offering courses online for free (with certificates available upon completion -- for a fee). And the two universities launch a research initiative to examine how these sorts of efforts support teaching and learning online and on-campus.
