BU + edX
The Digital Classroom:
Charting New Educational Terrain
It’s a brave new world in education. To that end, BU has joined edX, the exclusive MIT- and Harvard-led online learning platform. This pioneering partnership will give our professors unprecedented flexibility not only in designing their courses but in honing which methods work best with students. Both BU and edX are champions of the blended, or hybrid, course: a for-credit class that combines face-to-face instruction with online work. We’ll also offer five MOOCs (massive open online courses), which means people around the world can take a Boston University class for free. Whether on campus or in the far reaches of the globe, we’re thrilled to help reshape the way University-level learning takes place.
