World Class Learning Opportunity.

Edx platform helps me and learners from all over the world get a high-quality education, impactful learning experiences, and earn academic credentials from the world's highest rebuttable education institutions. It saves money and time and creates academic opportunities that wouldn't have been available before Edx. It helps everyone to get better job opportunities and career advancement.

Pros

Edx Platform has thousands of open courses and certification programs offered by the world's leading universities and research organizations. Edx puts more emphasis on academic degrees and credentials. The platform offers Professional certificates, micro bachelors, micro masters, and full master's degrees, all of which are online at affordable costs with free audit options for the majority of the platform content. The micro master's degree holders can earn academic credit hours that count towards a full master's degree program when they meet the program criteria.

Cons

I find the user interface of the Edx website and the learning management system need some enhancements, especially the course/lesson navigations, which aren't easy to navigate and are a bit confusing.

My Review of edX

My overall experience with edX is good but it is a little bit expensive.

Pros

I like that the courses on edX are offered by accredited institutions like big companies like IBM or global universities like Harvard, not just anybody can publish a course on edX. Also, I love that edX contains specializations that consist of sub-courses that take me from the beginner level to the advanced level without needing to switch to another course.

Cons

I don't love the interface of edX as it is not friendly and doesn't encourage studying. The cost of the certificate is very expensive if I want to obtain it. Also, I face some issues with the subtitles as some of the content doesn't have any subtitles even in English.

Increasing knowledge at low cost

Having the opportunity to study something else at a low financial cost or even for free is everything!

Pros

I discovered it in Pandemia when I was looking for a course, diploma or technical course in the areas of improvement I needed at work. I love it, because you can do it from wherever you are, it gives you an ideal program but they tell you that you can do it at your own pace, which is great! Being able to adapt your studies to your lifestyle. The classes can be set at a lower speed, the exercises are very practical, and the interactivity of the forums is very good, you feel as if you were in college.

Cons

So far I haven't found anything I didn't like about the platform.

The Best On Line Learning Experience

My experience is extremely rewarding. I have done amazing courses from different areas of knowledge and certainly adquired new competencies.

Pros

edX offers courses from many world class universities, an easy enrollment and a friendly guiding through the course. By an affordable price we can get a certificate. Videos and texts, recommended readings and test make easy the learning process and encourage students to achive the course objectives.

Cons

There are not cons, I hope edX continues growing and adding courses to the catalog. I certanly recommend edX to peers and colleges.
