2U+edX – One Year Later
We came together because we saw around the corner, anticipating that today’s learners want more choice and control over what, where, when and how they learn. Over the past year, our complementary strengths and advancements have ably positioned us not only to give learners what they want, but also to ensure they achieve their goals and thrive.
We are now meeting the needs of more learners than ever before and giving our partners increased flexibility in how to leverage our support and be resilient to the challenges ahead. We also have greater means to help reduce the cost of education so that affordable, high-quality learning becomes a basic human right for everyone, regardless of your background or stage of life.

A commitment to affordable, high-quality education for all
One year after coming together, we are more eager and ready than ever to help solve some of society’s greatest challenges through the promise of education for all. Our successes over the past year demonstrate how much we can be a force for systemic change, so that learners and our partners can overcome the pressures ahead and thrive.
We will achieve this future by continuing to offer industry-leading technology services and end-to-end learner support while growing our content portfolio in exciting and relevant ways. We will also continue to match learners with the right learning in the right format at the right time, and continue to expand and enrich our partnerships with the world’s top institutions and brands. Through it all, we will remain firmly committed to keeping universal access to affordable, high-quality education at the heart of everything we do.
One year later and so many more years of limitless opportunities together to come. Ahead!
