“The University of Texas announced its participation in the Harvard- and MIT-foundedonline education venture edXat a press conference Monday morning, making it the first full university system to join since the enterprise launched earlier this year.
The addition of the nine UT schools quadruples the size of edX, which previously included along with the two Cambridge founder schools only the University of California, Berkeley, which announced its participation in July.
“The UT system is one of the leading systems in the nation,” EdX President and MIT professor Anant Agarwal said of the group, which includes UT-Austin and UT-Dallas. “EdX is really excited to work with the UT system in re-inventing learning and dramatically improving success rates among our student populations.”
