Harvard University professors expressed concerned that HarvardX, the school’s offering on the EdX online teaching platform founded by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is operating without the involvement of its faculty. Almost 60 professors signed a letter to Michael Smith, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, requesting that he form a committee “to draft a set of ethical and education principles” that will govern the faculty’s involvement in HarvardX, according to the letter sent yesterday and reprinted in today’s Harvard Crimson.
