About edX Review

edX is an online course app that provides you access to a large catalog of online higher education courses, particularly in the sciences. You can enroll in either self-paced or timed classes, ranging between four and twelve weeks.

edX Review Review

EdX offers both self-paced and timed classes, which are free, but there are some flaws. Discussions could be better organized, students have little contact with their professors, TAs, or colleagues, and assessment, while best in class, remains inadequate, particularly in the humanities. Although edX offers various certificates (Honor, Verified, and XSeries), learners will not receive the credentials they would at a traditional institution. EdX employs a freemium model in which learners audit classes for free or make what edX calls a donation ($50 or more) to participate in certificate programs that verify their identities.

Learning at edX

From courses on supply chain analytics to cyber security fundamentals, introduction to solar systems to mobile app development and robots programming language, edX has self-paced learning courses for everyone.

For every course available on the app, the app tells you about the course in brief, length of the course, no. of hours required to study per week, institution/ university, subject, level, instructor, and what you’ll learn from that course. It also mentions about the prerequisites, i.e. basic knowledge of which subjects is necessary to learn that course.

edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where you can immediately practice the concepts from the videos. Moreover, the courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where you can post your queries and comment on questions posted by other edX learners.

There is also an option to download the video and watch offline for added convenience.

Earn a Professional Certificate

Learning any course is free, and anyone can learn any course without paying a single penny. However, for learners who wish to showcase their newly acquired skills, edX provides an additional option to get a verified certificate by paying a small amount of money, for example: $50. This cost varies depending on the course.

Upon making a payment, you’ll receive an instructor-signed certificate with the institution’s logo to verify your achievement and increase your job prospects.

Final Thought

Whether you want to develop the expertise employers are looking for nowadays through a series of skill-based certificate courses, or want to accelerate your Master’s degree / career through a series of graduate-level courses, edX app is a good platform to start. All the courses are mobile-friendly and edX verified. And the best part about the edX app is that it is a non-profit organization, thus all courses are free to join.
