France University Numerique (FUN), the French national MOOC platform with over a million students and 300 courses, has reached an agreement with edX.org to share course content and strengthen its partnership.
FUN learners will easily access the catalog of courses in English and Spanish offered by edX.org, while edX’s students access FUN’s classes. Initially, edX has made available seven courses: three from MIT, three from Harvard and one from Microsoft (see them above).
Created in June 2013, FUN was the first national platform using Open edX. Since then, hundreds of international initiatives have been launched. Today the Open edX universe is being used by more than 300 sites, which host over 4,300 courses in 32 languages.
