Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
EdX, the massive open online course (MOOC) consortium started by MIT and Harvard, has released its full source code, a decision the backers hope will accelerate advances to the platform.
"We want contributors," said Rob Rubin, edX's VP of engineering. "We'd welcome any company's contributions and any peoples' use of the edX platform. We're in the very early days in the development of the technology to support learning and research about learning. Let's all contribute to the open-source effort to be able to rapidly evolve that for the benefits of the student."
