edX and Google

Coming right on the heels of my course-creation review:

https://www.edx.org/alert/edx-announces-partnership-google/1115

An excerpt:

Google will work on the core platform development with leading experts from many edX partner institutions, including MIT, Harvard, UC Berkeley, Stanford, University of Western Australia, University of Queensland, and Tsinghua University. In addition, edX and Google will collaborate on research into how students learn and how technology can transform learning and teaching on campus and beyond.

The international setup is nice to see. When I ran Mechanics Review we certainly had the majority of our students coming from outside the US.

By day I help to create online courses at HarvardX. By night I write roleplaying games.
