Unizin, a nonprofit consortium of 25 universities, today announced a partnership with edX.org, the leading nonprofit online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT. Unizin will operate and invest in the Open edX platform, the learning experience platform that powers edX.org. The software will serve as a hosted platform for Unizin’s member universities, and key enhancements to the software will be coordinated and shared with the Open edX community. Ohio State University, Indiana University, and University of Michigan have committed to the hosted Open edX software from Unizin. Unizin and edX will collaborate to advance education technology standards and to open access to data for users of the Open edX learning experience. This partnership will shape the future of education both on-campus and online and will increase the scale and speed as well as enhance the mission of both communities.
