Arizona State teams with edX to launch online freshman program

Arizona State University is joining with the nonprofit massive open online course provider edX to begin the Global Freshman Academy, which will be available worldwide.

The new online program will offer 12 courses—eight of which make up a freshman year. It promises full university credit without any admissions process required.

The upfront cost will be $45 per course, and classes offered include astronomy, algebra and human origins, which will be taught by Arizona State professors.
