Berkeley Joins ‘EdX’ Effort to Offer Free Open Courses

Commentary by Stephen Downes

It looks like EdX is seeking to expand in the same way Coursera has, by creating a consortium of universities. This appears to be the case after Berkeley's announcement it is joing the consortium, and the statement that "that more institutions will eventually be admitted to the exclusive group." I wonder whether partners in Coursera and EdX have an exclusivity clause, or whether we could eventually see the same university joing both, and more, online course consortia.
