The Residential MITx platform is an online learning system, based on open edX, and used widely in undergraduate and graduate courses at MIT. It offers a platform for authoring and distributing online course content such as videos, text, assessments, interactive elements, and sophisticated automatic grading.

Residential MITx is strongly impacting on-campus teaching:

  • Between 30-50 on-campus courses use Residential MITx every semester.
  • 4060 MIT undergraduates use MITx in their classes.
  • 96% of MIT undergraduates have used Residential MITx for coursework.
