UT Austin and edX: Transforming Education through Innovation

In Fall of 2012, the University of Texas at Austin became the fourth partner to join edX, the online non-profit learning initiative founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The first four UTAustinX courses are open for registration now with courses starting this fall.

Through edX, the “X Universities” provide online interactive education with a goal of enhancing teaching and learning through research about how students learn, and how technologies can facilitate effective teaching both on campus and in the online environment.
