Kyle Courtney, HX's Copyright Guru, Named Mover and Shaker

Kyle Courtney, who helps to manage HarvardX's numerous copyright law issues, was named one of Library Journal's "Movers & Shakers" for 2015.

Kyle Courtney is infectiously enthusiastic—about copyright law, MOOCs, open access, Harvard’s Office for Scholarly Communication (OSC) (“we are a nimble, technologically awesome library unit”), and especially his Copyright First Responders (CFRs), a cohort of 14 volunteer librarians assembled to serve as the first line of defense for the ever-growing number of copyright questions fielded by Harvard libraries.

ChinaX to Wrap after 15 Months

ChinaX, often hailed as the longest MOOC ever produced, will soon wrap its first iteration---after 10 modules, 15 months, and thousands of adoring learners.

The Course ChinaX is beyond amazing. I am fascinated with Chinese culture, language, history after serving as a volunteer English teacher.

I just want to say 谢谢您 for making videos available through edX app, so people who can't take the course and earn the extremely valuable certificate can at the very least access knowledge on the subject matter.

HX Is … Cosmopolitan

"Our physical presence is exceeded by our digital reach. Nearly 2 million learners have registered for courses through HarvardX, almost two thirds of them from outside of the United States, with India, China, and Brazil among the countries most represented on the online learning platform. A high school student taking CS50, an introduction to computer science, became so enamored with the course that he offered to translate it into Portuguese.
