EDX was founded in 2012 by leading US universities – MIT and Harvard. It had gathered over a million users after just one year! It’s a non-profit organization that invites students to learn skills that would benefit them in their lives (both career and personal). Currently, the platform offers more than 3,000 interactive online courses and over 300 programs that are partnered with organizations, universities and colleges from all over the world.
The main objective is to make it possible for young professionals to gain new skills and learn, as well as add verified certificates to their portfolios. Most courses last 4-12 weeks and require 4-8 hours of study per week. Everyone has an end date. They are in English in most cases, however, there are some that are taught in other languages.
