We are honored to announce that Institut Mines-Télécom, a public institution dedicated to higher education and research for innovation in the fields of engineering and digital technology, has joined edX.
Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) brings extensive experience with MOOC development to the edX global community. IMT is the first member of FUN, a French MOOC platform that uses Open edX, the open-source platform that powers edX courses, to join edX as a partner. IMT will help to further the existing partnership between FUN and edX, and will now offer IMT MOOCs to the global edX learning community as well.
The first IMT course, offered in English, on edX is “Digital Networks Essentials.” The course offers learners the know-how needed to master the network technologies used every day to communicate and access information via the web and phones.
As the demand for engineers who can design, develop and manage data networks increases, this course provides the hands-on experience necessary to understand how data flows through the Internet to phones and to learn the IP protocols that support all online communications.This knowledge will help engineers stand out to employers.
The launch of the first IMT course on edX marks an exciting new step in our partnership to enhance teaching and learning both on campus and online and our shared mission to increase access to high-quality education for everyone, everywhere.
Please join me in welcoming IMT to edX!
