Harvard Online Learning

HarvardX is a University-wide strategic initiative, overseen by the Office of the VPAL. HarvardX enables faculty to create online learning experiences for residential and online use, and conduct groundbreaking research in online pedagogy. Its Harvard Online Courses portal enables learners around the globe to gain access to Harvard’s extensive collection of online courses. 

Launched in parallel with edX (a non-profit learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT), HarvardX is fully independent. As one critical endeavor among many across the University, HarvardX is designed to empower faculty to improve teaching and learning on-campus, online, and beyond. By integrating the development of instructional approaches and digital tools across campus, HarvardX provides faculty with pedagogical and research support. It aims to be collaborative and to represent Harvard’s academic diversity, showcasing the highest quality offerings of the University to serious learners everywhere.
