EdX is a nonprofit, open-source enterprise offering more than 700 online courses from more than 90 member institutions, composed of both leading global universities and a diverse group of prominent organizations around the world.
Founded by Harvard and MIT, 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, USA, 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
Achieving this mission at a worldwide scale while supporting a thriving open source project presents a number of interesting challenges to our engineers which require creative solutions.
