New Study Raises Questions of Access for HarvardX - C. RAMSEY FAHS, Harvard Crimson

Researchers find a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and MOOC completion. While the average MOOC user lives in a neighborhood with a median income $11,998 above the national average, the difference is $23,181 among 13 to 17-year-olds, an age range of critical importance in determining post-secondary focus, the researchers say. EdX publishes online courses created by dozens of partner schools. HarvardX, also founded in 2012, is Harvard’s MOOC-production arm. http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2015/12/16/new-moocs-study-access/#mce_temp_url#
