The University System of Maryland (USM), which comprises 12 institutions, has joined edX as a Contributing Charter Member.
As a result of this partnership, USM will offer for-credit courses. The first course, offered by UMUC and the University of Maryland, Baltimore, will be Global Health – The Lessons of Ebola, starting on September 20. It will explore how multidisciplinary teams can work more effectively together to address global health needs and examine why local health issues affect us globally.
USM’s investment on edX has been 2 million dollars.
