Wellesley College teams up with online provider edX
Classes at liberal arts colleges bring to mind groups of students bunched around a wooden table, batting around big ideas with a professor. That tradition would seem at odds with the new trend in higher education, opening courses to the masses via the Internet. Now, a new partnership involving Wellesley College is seeking to bridge the two worlds. EdX, the online education provider founded by Harvard and MIT, plans to announce Tuesday that the women’s school has joined its growing roster.
