WellesleyX continues in Spring 2014.
In December 2012, Wellesley College became the first liberal arts college to join the edX learning collaborative, and also the first women’s college to offer massive open online courses (MOOCs). In February 2014, WellesleyX continues with its second course, HIST229x: Was Alexander Great? The Life, Leadership and Legacies of History's Greatest Warrior, taught by Guy MacLean Rogers, Mildred Lane Kemper Professor of History and Classical Studies.
All four courses are hosted on the edX platform and will be free of charge. Register today!
“I am pleased that Wellesley will bring a much-needed liberal arts perspective to the rapidly developing online learning environment,” Wellesley College President Kim Bottomly said in a statement to the Wellesley Community. According to President Bottomly, the College will approach WellesleyX as an experiment. “What we learn over the next few years has the potential to help us advance undergraduate education.”
