Google and EdX to Launch a UGC MOOC Site Next Year

Image

Google and edX are teaming up for an open-source massive open online course site,MOOC.org, that in 2014 will allow anyone to create and post courses. The initiative from Google comes out of the company’s research group, and brings two of the stronger brand names in the biz into partnership in the rapidly-crowding online education space. Elite universities will continue to contribute to a separate MOOC site, edX.org.
