"Thomas Edison State College and the Saylor Foundation have announced an agreement to enhance access for adults to earn college credit through Saylor's high-quality, free, open courses and the college's nationally renowned expertise in assessment.
"According to the agreement, the Saylor Foundation will identify its most popular courses for which learners have expressed an interest in earning college credit and Thomas Edison State College will create examinations and other assessments for those courses. In addition, the college will map Saylor courses that already align with existing college examinations, including the Thomas Edison State College Examination Program (TECEP). With this agreement, the College has become the first senior public institution of higher education in New Jersey to partner with a major provider of online open courses."
