Update effective May 31, 2019: It has been a pleasure collaborating with BITS, Pilani for the past 5 years. Our work together has helped to further our shared mission to increase access to high-quality education for learners everywhere. We have come to realize, however, that at this point we and BITS are each excited about different paths within the online learning space, and thus we have parted ways. We wish BITS all the best in their upcoming endeavors, and we hope to work together again in the future.
BITS’ mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarships that will best serve India and the world in the 21st century. Dedicated to providing students with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery, BITS will now extend its commitment to the learning community both on campus and worldwide with BITSx through high-quality online courses to students around the globe.
BITS works to continuously innovate and refresh its curriculum to reflect the latest developments in technology and educational trends. Its commitment to cutting-edge technology and innovation directly aligns with edX’s mission to increase access to education for students worldwide using online learning and technology, while also improving on-campus education and gaining greater insights into how students learn.
As BITSx, The Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani will begin offering classes on edX.org in August 2014. We look forward to bringing you more information about BITS’ great courses.
