Nice to see that Harvard can cooperate with the City when it wants to

This educational connection to the Harvard campus being announced by the Mayor tonight is great. Physical connections to the campus are also important, which is why it is too bad that Harvard continues to cling to its proposal for a parking lot and truck maintenance facility on Travis Street.

In speech, Menino to announce initiative with Harvard, MIT - News -
Two world-renowned universities have been tethered to Boston for almost a century by trains on the Red Line. Soon, the city may be able to boast a more reliable connection to the main campuses of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The City of Boston plans to launch a partnership with the two institutions through the experimental online initiative edX, which offers free courses to anyone with Internet access. In his State of the City address Tuesday night, Mayor Thomas M. Menino will announce an effort to bring edX to Boston’s community centers, according to his staff.

    edX is already open to anyone with a computer, anywhere in the world.

    The problem is these classes require a lot of time and community centers have limited hours.
