Today EdX and Google announced their partnership:
EdX, the not-for-profit online learning initiative founded by Harvard and MIT, today announced a partnership with Google to jointly develop their open-source learning platform, known as Open EdX. The core edX offerings currently consist of a few dozen free "Massive Open Online Courses," or MOOCs, from top-flight university partners like MIT, Harvard, and Berkeley--but the Open EdX vision goes far beyond that.
This Google will put resources into the development of the EdX platform. They will stop with the development of Course Builder. So more developers will be developing on the edx platform.
Next to this, edX will build out and operate MOOC.org (in collaboration with Google), a new site for non-xConsortium universities, institutions, businesses, governments and teachers to build and host their courses for a global audience. This site will be powered by the jointly developed Open edX platform.
MOOC.org will go live in the middle of 2014.
