California State U. System Will Expand MOOC Experiment (Chronicle of Higher Ed)

The Chronicle of Higher Ed covers yesterday’s edX/SJSU announcement:

San Jose State University plans to widen its relationship with edX, the nonprofit provider of massive open online courses, and the California State University system is encouraging similar experiments on 11 other campuses.

The university will incorporate three to five new edX courses into its local curriculum next fall, including courses in the humanities and social sciences.

San Jose State last fall used material from an edX course, “Circuits & Electronics,” as part of a “flipped classroom” experiment in its own introductory course in electrical engineering.
