A partnership between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, edX offers Harvard and MIT classes online for free. EdX is based on MITx and includes video lessons, embedded testing, real-time feedback, student-ranked questions and answers, collaborative Web-based laboratories, and student-paced learning. The resource focuses on free massively open online courses, or MOOCs, and like MITx, courses will offer a certificate but not credit. The University of California at Berkeley is also part of the venture.
