Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) entered into a partnership with Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to provide a few courses accessible to the students across the world through online learning. The institute has entered into a joint venture with edX, a not-for-profit organization that has been established by the Harvard University and MIT to start Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

The aim of the new initiative according to IIT Bombay director Devang Khakhar is to reach out to maximum number of students across the globe. The infrastructure and web-based technology of edX helps lakhs of students to login at the same time. Some of the programmes offered by MOOCs are recorded and some are live. The new initiative also provides a platform for the trainers and students to share their experience on online leaning.

In order to join the online course, the students need to create an account in edX and then register for their preferred programme.

IIT Bombay has used the facilities of Information and Communication Technology to organize various training programmes with the help of a number of participants of various national mission projects sponsored by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
