edX made that plan official on Thursday, announcing an “expanded membership structure” to supplement the 32 universities that are currently building MOOCs with edX. The 12 new members include Colgate University and Hamilton College as well as several nonacademic institutions, such as the Linux Foundation and the International Monetary Fund. Anant Agarwal, president of edX, said in an interview with The Chronicle that the new members would be able to offer MOOCs on the edX website alongside the original 32 member institutions. They would also have the opportunity to share any revenue generated by the courses, said Mr. Agarwal. However, they would not be privy to the same strategy conversations as the charter members, he said.
