15 schools join online classroom initiative

Berklee, BU among new edX participants

CAMBRIDGE — A year after Harvard University and MIT launched edX, a not-for-profit initiative that offers online classes at no charge, the group announced Tuesday that it is doubling the number of participating universities, with the Berklee College of Music and Boston University among the new members.

Fifteen higher education institutions are joining, including many from Asia and Europe, bringing the total number of schools to 27. About 50 edX classes have already been offered or are currently enrolling students, and 930,000 people have registered to use the website.
