Courses will help prepare students for postsecondary success, edX reps said
High school students now have access to massive open online courses (MOOCs) through a new effort from MOOC platform edX, which says it intends the courses to help students prepare for college-level work.
edX collaborated with institutions such as MIT and Georgetown to produce the 27 courses, which include Advanced Placement (AP) sciences, math, and history, as well as French and Spanish.
In addition to helping students better prepare for college and make them less likely to need remedial courses, edX said on its website that teachers can use the MOOCs to enhance their classroom curriculum.
