WellesleyX begins Fall 2013.
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). This fall, the first of the four initial WellesleyX courses begins with ANTH207x Introduction to Human Evolution, taught by Assistant Professor of Anthropology Adam Van Arsdale.
All four courses will be 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.”
