The collaboration brings more variety to the company’s existing offerings by providing access to a library of top universities from around the world. betterU’s vision to provide access to quality education across India is amplified through this association in lieu of edX’s reputation as a critical enabler for open access to education for everyone.
betterU, offering more than 6,500 courses on its platform seeks to partner with leading educators across all levels and sectors of education. “betterU is committed in its vision to provide access to quality education, in all essential forms and formats. We are delighted to have free courses from edX on our marketplace as it further expands our selection and range.” says Bradley Loiselle, CEO betterU. “Open learning is an exciting prospect in education and we are accommodating the new format on our marketplace to provide our users with a plethora of options across categories. We look forward to creating endless opportunities for Indians by using education as a tool.”
edX, a nonprofit learning destination, received over 7,50,000 registrations from India last year highlighting the growing demand and need for free programs in the Indian market. With more than 730,000 Indian learners, India comprises 11% of the edX learner base overall. Anant Agarwal, edX CEO and MIT Professor, said, “This new initiative expands upon edX’s collaboration with betterU. Reiterating the company’s focus on the Indian market, this association will enable hundreds of thousands of more individuals and institutions to discover and access edX. We believe that our joint mission with betterU to make education more accessible to everyone will gain momentum with this tie-up.”
In line with its strategic expansion, betterU has been partnering with the top global and Indian institutes and corporations. The company is revolutionizing the online learning space and has become the one stop shop for all learning related opportunities.
