Live Peace with edX

Each Saturday we like to highlight an organization that is making Good Happen! This week’s organization goes by the name of edX.

edX is a non-profit organization founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that offers classes specifically designed for interactive study via the web. They have many interesting classes available, all of which are offered for free and can be found on their course catalog. Joining Harvard and MIT in offering classes are The University of California at Berkeley, The University of Texas System, Wellesley University, and Georgetown University.

The institutions will also be using edX as a basis of research on how students learn and how technology can shape learning. The goals of edX feature a desire to reach out to students of all walks of life and to have teachers who reflect the diversity of its audience.

All you need is an internet connection and a desire to learn!

Good Happens.

Pay it Forward!
