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.  

Le maître mot du directeur d'EdX, Agarwal : l'efficience, c'est à dire un ratio entre la qualité et les coûts. “Nous avons une mission radicalement différente des plateformes privées", affirme Agarwal ." Nous n'avons pas de but lucratif. Nos produits sont open source. Notre technologie est pour tout le monde".
