In addition to educational offerings, edX is utilized for research into learning and distance education by collecting learners' clicks and analyzing the data, as well as collecting demographics from each registrant.     A team of researchers at Harvard and MIT, led by David Pritchard and Lori Breslow, released their initial findings in 2013.
 EdX member schools and organizations also conduct their own research using data collected from their courses.  Research focuses on improving retention, course completion and learning outcomes in traditional campus courses and online. 
"  Leadership [ edit ] On October 10, 2018 edX introduced 9 Master's degrees on the platform. The degree programs can be completed fully online and are offered by universities such as Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California San Diego.  Participating institutions [ edit ] In April 2015, edX partnered with Arizona State University to launch the Global Freshman Academy.
 Dogwood EdX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practice the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants.
Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course. For example, in edX's first MOOC — a circuits and electronics course — students built virtual circuits in an online lab.  2017-02-23 Birch
 Open edX is the open-source platform software developed by EdX and made freely available to other institutions of higher learning that want to make similar offerings. On June 1, 2013, edX open sourced its entire platform.  The source code can be found on GitHub.

CEO Anant Agarwal of MIT stated that Cebula would bring "an entrepreneurial aspect" and help the nonprofit to access "commercial opportunities. Garber, Provost of Harvard University, assisted by Michael D. Smith, a computer scientist who is Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, handles Harvard contributions.
The design of a viable business model for sustainability of the enterprise is in progress.

 EdX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). EdX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).   Research [ edit ] EdX has engaged in a number of partnerships with educational institutions in the United States, China, Mongolia, Japan, and more to utilize edX courses in "blended classrooms.
"  In blended learning models, traditional classes include an online interactive component. San Jose State University (SJSU) partnered with edX to offer 6. 00xL Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, as a blended course at SJSU and released an initial report on the project in February 2013.
Initial results showed a decrease in failure rates from previous semesters. The percentage of students required to retake the course dropped from 41% under the traditional format to 9% for those taking the edX blended course.  In Spring 2013, Bunker Hill Community College and Massachusetts Bay Community College implemented a SPOC, or small private online course.
The colleges incorporated an MIT-developed Python programming course on EdX into their campus-based courses, and reported positive results.   Open edX [ edit ] Versions  On January 9, 2018, Tech Mahindra partnered with edX to re-skill workforce on new tech areas.
