EdX Online Classroom Code Going Open Source, Uniting With Stanford

from the together-we-live dept.

The edX project today announced that they are joining forces with Stanford and releasing the source to edX on June 1st. As part of the platform going Free, Stanford will be integrating features from their Open Source Class2Go project. From Stanford: “Mitchell said that Stanford’s Class2Go platform development team has been in contact with the edX team for a number of months, and that much code is already synchronized so that the collaboration between the two platforms will be a smooth one. The advantage will then be ‘a larger team building one strong open source platform, rather than two competing open source platforms, which we think will be more desirable for universities around the world,’ Mitchell added.”
