Cardinal Online: Stanford University and edX Announce New Collaboration

Add another school to team edX.

The partnership is a big step toward edX’s mission of becoming the “Linux of online learning,” both with the prestige that a partnership with Stanford cialis how supplied brings and the powerful Class2Go tools being folded in. Designed by a team of Stanford engineers, Class2Go’s analytic tools track how long students watched specific videos, which sections of a video they repeated and other student interactions on a given site.

While the Class2Go platform will be discontinued, edX’s President Anant Agarwal told Gigaom, “By putting all the wood behind one arrow, so to speak, we thought we could have a bigger impact.”

“It has been our vision to offer our platform as open source since edX’s founding by Harvard and MIT”, added Argawal. “We are now realizing that vision.”

As a Stanford alumnus, it’s great to see the University work to offer its educational expertise to a wider audience than the select lucky few who matriculate. Keep an eye on edX—it would not surprise me if more leaders in education got behind their egalitarian approach to education.
