EdX adds new PSE institutions, first non-PSE organizations

March 7, 2014

EdX has expanded its membership structure to enable additional universities and colleges, foundations and other global organizations to join the MOOC consortium, with 6 PSE institutions and 6 organizations signing on this week. New members announced yesterday include the International Monetary Fund, the Buffett family’s "Learning by Giving” Foundation, The Linux Foundation and The Smithsonian Institution. “The expansion comes in response to increasing demand from edX students for a broader array of courses, along with growing interest from academic and non-academic institutions to offer a diverse set of high quality courses to a global audience on edx.org and through the expanding network of edX open source partners,” explains an edX News Release. edX News Release
