Class2Go To Merge With edEx

Stanford’s online course platform Class2Go  has announced  to merge with edX . The new alliance is expected to produce a joint open source online learning platform that will first be available in June this year. edX is a non-profit online learning enterprise founded by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

EdX, which was launched in fall 2012, currently hosts free online courses from Harvard, MIT and the University of California, Berkeley. The platform has announced plans to incorporate material from Wellesley, Georgetown and the University of Texas system in fall 2013, and will expand to feature international universities beginning in 2014.

On June 1, 2013, edX will become an open source platform, making its source code available to the public through the Platform Repository. Features from Class2Go, which has been an open source platform since Jan. 2013, will be integrated into the edX platform.
