The open education landscape is set to grow a little more as Stanford University announces plans to team up with edX to build an online learning platform that universities and developers around the world can access for free. edX, a not-for-profit online education project founded in 2012 by MIT and Harvard University, develops online learning courses for students. The project encourages collaboration between teachers, students, and faculty to fit the needs of individual institutions. Now, Stanford, an industry leader in online education, will integrate its existing Class2Go open source platform with the edX platform. The collaboration will be available on June 1, 2013 and used as an internal platform for online courses taken by on-campus and distance learners. Stanford will also work alongside edX and other institutions to further develop the platform and make it accessible to a number of international schools.
