Over 100 higher education institutions throughout France will participate in the new national MOOC portal. The first 20 courses will be launched at the end of October and will start in January 2014.
The platform is based on the open-source platform of EdX. This year the edX platform has also been adopted by the International Monetary Fund to deliver a pair of courses that will be offered to government representatives and opened to the public in 2014 and by Aspiring Minds, an Indian company that helps individuals improve their skills for greater employability.
For us, as EdX Consortium member, it is also benificial. There will be more developers working on the code.
The Dutch minister of education is working on a position paper on MOOCs (and online education). I'm interested if they will do a similar step in this direction.
