Charles Tiayon's curator insight, September 12, 2013 11:17 AM

What will Google bring to the project? Google will work on core platform development. Google's Dan Clancy, Director of Research, said Tuesday, "We are taking our learnings from Course Builder and applying them to Open edX" for the latter's new platform.

By Course Builder, Clancy is referring to the open source experimental platform that Google started in 2012 with the similar spirit of support for online learning, providing the tools for those who want to create an interactive online course. Though it was Google's first step into this kind of project, Course Builder attracted a community of education-focused people around the world. In 2014, however, the edX alphabet soup is going to have a key main ingredient, yet another catchy phrase to watch, called MOOC.org. This will go live in 2014 with courses.

"We look forward to contributing to edX's new site, MOOC.org, a new service for online learning which will allow any academic institution, business and individual to create and host online courses." said Clancy.
