Columbia University announced Thursday that it has joined edX, the online education platform co-founded by Harvard and MIT, becoming the organization’s 33rd “charter member.” Columbia is the third Ivy League institution to join the platform, in addition to Harvard. The university will operate as ColumbiaX and plans to launch its first three courses later this year. ColumbiaX’s first courses will center around American Civil War history and be taught by Columbia history professor Eric Foner. Foner is the author of “The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery,” which won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for History, and a professor at the university.
