For Faculty

How to create and teach a course

HarvardX has launched a new proposal process for full-time faculty who wish to become involved with HarvardX. The process begins with a short letter of interest, these letters are reviewed on a rolling basis. If the proposed project fits within the stated goals of HarvardX, the faculty member will then work with the HX team to develop a course or module proposal and understand the work required before submitting a complete proposal to the HarvardX Faculty Committee.

How to conduct research

HarvardX's sister organization, VPAL Research, prioritizes projects that inform the design of online courses and modules, improve residential education, and answer questions about how people learn. To find out more including how to access our MOOC learner data visit
