Online courses provided by some of the top universities in the United States are going to be used by students at local community colleges, in a project funded by the Gates Foundation, writes Sean Coughlan for the BBC. The edX project, set up by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, announced a plan to “bring a new teaching model to the classroom”. It will blend edX’s online lectures and materials with classroom learning. EdX President Anant Agarwal pointed to the value to tight community college budgets.
