cafel23mooc's curator insight, March 9, 2013 3:52 PM

EdX regroupe 5 universités indépendantes (MIT, Harvard, the University of California at Berkeley, Georgetown University, and Wellesley College) et 15 collèges et universités de l'Etat du Texas. En moins d'un an; les 25 cursus proposés ont regroupé 700 000 personnes.

Nous n'avons pas de but lucratif. Nos produits sont open source. Notre technologie est pour tout le monde".

Régis Faubet's insight:
