edX: free courses from leading universities

"EdX is a not–for–profit enterprise of its founding partners Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that features learning designed specifically for interactive study via the web. Based on a long history of collaboration and their shared educational missions, the founders are creating a new online–learning experience with online courses that reflect their disciplinary breadth. Along with offering online courses, the institutions will use edX to research how students learn and how technology can transform learning–both on–campus and worldwide. Anant Agarwal, former Director of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, serves as the first president of edX. EdX's goals combine the desire to reach out to students of all ages, means, and nations, and to deliver these teachings from a faculty who reflect the diversity of its audience. EdX is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is governed by MIT and Harvard."

Furtherfield: co-creation, swapping and sharing code, music, images, video and ideas

"Vision: We believe that through creative and critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are inspired and enabled to become active co–creators of their cultures and societies. ...

Mission: Our mission is to co–create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change.

Who We Are and What We Do?: Furtherfield was founded by artists Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett in 1997 and sustained by the work of its community as the Internet took shape as a new public space for internationally connected cultural production.

Furtherfield is now a dynamic, creative and social nerve centre where upwards of 26,000 contributors worldwide have built a visionary culture around co–creation – swapping and sharing code, music, images, video and ideas.

A Not–for–Profit Private Limited Company since 2009, Furtherfield has received regular funding from Arts Council England since 2005 which supports artistic programmes with a local, national and international reach as well as innovative outreach projects and the development of new forms of infrastructure and digitally enabled participation and engagement in the arts.

Digital Communities for Co–creation: Through our online platforms for review, discussion, reflection, sound exploration, conversation and audiovisual mash–ups, specialist and amateur artists, designers, activists, thinkers, and technologists come together to cultivate open, engaging and stimulating contexts for making and thinking."
