EdX, the not-for-profit online learning enterprise, released its learning platform via open source license on June 1 and today released details of the first educational institutions and organizations that are contributing code to the platform.
In addition to the early and continuing contributions of edX founding partners, MIT and Harvard, xConsortium members such as Berkeley and University of Queensland are collaborating on the edX platform. Stanford University, along with technology providers 10gen and Concord Consortium, are also contributing to the platform. EdX is working closely with these organizations to provide source code, development resources and a collaborative environment to facilitate ongoing enhancements and features.
With this week’s release of the entire platform via open source license, edX is enabling the global development community to both use and help build a next-generation learning platform.
