Davidson College, edX and the College Board announced today a new collaboration to provide Advanced Placement (AP) teachers and their students with access to a suite of online instructional modules to improve educational outcomes in calculus, physics and macroeconomics. National data show that many students struggle to complete such independent, college-level coursework. This new, blended learning model will use exam data to pinpoint challenging concepts in the three disciplines, and then develop and present concept-based resources using the edX platform for teachers and students.

The New York Times featured the new partnership in the Education section of the paper. Read the article.
