edX is the trusted platform for education and learning. Founded by Harvard and MIT, edX is home to more than 20 million learners, the majority of top-ranked Universities in the world, and industry-leading companies. As a global nonprofit, edX is transforming traditional education, removing the barriers of cost, location and access.
Offering 2000 online courses from 140 leading institutions, edX helps people gain new skills, advance their careers, or learn for fun with courses in computer programming, data science, business, finance, marketing, engineering, language, humanities, science and more.
Almost all courses on edX are free to try. For a fee, learners can submit graded assignments and earn certificates of completion which can be highlighted on their resumes or LinkedIn profile.
Many of our courses are part of larger programs for learners to acquire deep skills in a field. Our MicroMasters programs consist of a series of graduate level courses for those looking for advanced training and our Professional Certificate programs provide a career pathway for those new to a field.
