Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
today released a series of working papers based on 17 online courses
offered on the edX platform. Run in 2012 and 2013, the courses drew upon
diverse topics — from ancient Greek poetry to electromagnetism — and an
array of disciplines, including public health, engineering, and law.

The series features detailed reports about individual courses; these
reports reveal differences and commonalities among massive open online
courses (MOOCs). In the coming weeks, data sets and interactive
visualization tools will also be made available.
