Extra Credits

In addition to all of the amazing things our HarvardX staff do at the office, they somehow find time to do extracurriculars as well.

The link below is to an article that describes a project our own Kevin Belli, videographer, has a part in.

Kevin shot all the Afghanistan footage as well as some of the still photography. There is a reception tonight at WBGH from 6-8 to which the public is invited. See “Line-up of events” in the article.

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.
