MoocLab in collaboration with CourseTalk features the top upcoming courses each month based on CourseTalk's user reviews.
You'll see that the vast majority of these classes come from edX. A big reason for that, in addition to the fact that edX puts on great courses, is the fact that many providers have their classes available all the time nowadays, and are therefore excluded from any lists limited by start date.
