The University of Washington is growing its presence in the world of online course offerings by joining with edX, a course platform pioneered by Harvard and MIT. Adding to its growing catalog of free online-course offerings, the University of Washington announced Tuesday it is joining another free course provider — this one run by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Beginning in January, the UW will offer four new courses through edX, a not-for-profit Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider pioneered by Harvard and MIT. The UW already offers eight courses through Coursera, a for-profit started more than a year ago by two Stanford University professors.
