EdX is a nonprofit, open-source online learning destination founded by Harvard and MIT that offers free, high-quality courses to anyone, anywhere. Since our inception in the spring of 2012, edX has grown to include more than 120 highly acclaimed international institutions, offering 1,200+ courses with more continually being added.
edX is focused on transforming online and on-campus learning through groundbreaking methodologies, game-like experiences and cutting-edge research on an open-source platform. Based in Cambridge, MA edX is focused on people, not profit.
Our edX mission is three-fold:
- Increase access to high-quality education for everyone, everywhere
- Enhance teaching and learning on campus and online
- Advance teaching and learning through research
