Private school chain GEMS Education announced a partnership with edX at the Global Education and Skills Forum to bring MOOCs to the K-12 space.
GEMS Education will be edX’s first partner in K-12 and joins as contributing member. The first courses will go live in the second half of 2014.
edX just recently expanded its membership structure in order to offer more courses outside of classic academia. According to edX some of the most talented and engaged students on the platform are attending secondary or even middle school.
