Under a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice announced
Thursday, edX, the nonprofit MOOC provider created by Harvard University
and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has agreed to make its
offerings more accessible to people with disabilities.

The settlement agreement,

massive open online courses, affects the colleges that are members of edX
as well as the nonprofit consortium itself.
