The courses will start with a pilot program for Saudi women, youth, the disabled and citizens in rural areas, the press release said. These groups will be the ones likely to realize the greatest opportunity as a result of the new MOOC because they will have access to education, which can “advance their careers,” the release said. “Through extending educational opportunity to the people of Saudi Arabia, the initiative will help provide the skills necessary for economic empowerment,” said Anant Agarwal, CEO, edX, in a prepared statement.
