Bennett University signs MoU with edX for offering MOOCs

Bennett University of Times Group and edX, the non-profit online learning initiative founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on January 15, 2016 signed a collaborative agreement under which edX will provide massive open online courses (‘MOOCs’) to Bennett University. The tie-up was announced during a meet of the recently-formed International Advisory Council, comprising leading global educationists and industry leaders in Mumbai today.

According to the MOU partners, both edX and Bennett University will work to develop a mutually-agreeable plan for offering MOOCs to students as part of a blended curriculum. With the collaboration framework, edX will help Bennett University create and host courses from its faculty via enabling training for Bennett faculty and staff, as well as provide access to relevant infrastructure and features (such as Private Cohorts) that enable this.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vineet Jain, Managing Director – Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd and Chancellor – Bennett University said that expertise and global reach of edX will greatly benefit Bennett University students. “I firmly believe the association with edX will assist graduating students to be industry ready from day one,” he said.

Mr. Anant Agarwal, CEO – edX and MIT Professor said that India is an important and growing market and exuded confidence that association with Times Group will be instrumental in “extending learning opportunities to learners who lack access to education and high quality resources.”

Signing the MoU, Mr. Vineet Jain and Mr. Anant Agarwal emphasised the growing need for innovative and international education standards in the country. Mr Agarwal is also a member of the International Advisory Council of Bennett University.

Bennett University, an initiative from The Times of India Group, will be beginning its academic season from July 2016 offering various courses including B.Tech in Engineering (with specializations in Computer Science Engineering, Electronics & Communications and Mechanical Engineering), and an MBA in Management. The campus is located in Greater Noida of the National Capital Region.
