Open edX Becomes the Central LMS at MIT: 80% of Students on Campus Use It

Open edX has become the central LMS at MIT, with nearly 200 campus courses running at any given time.

Nearly 80% of MIT’s campus students use the edX platform as part of their coursework according to Sheryl Barnet, MIT’s program manager for digital learning in residential education.

Barnes said that a student survey revealed that “95% of our students love the platform and the experience”.

“The ability for students to receive instant feedback on problem sets, review past content, and have a more immediate sense of how they are doing in a challenging, has made the combination of traditional and online teaching a big hit”.
