Cons

All the tools provided are great for MOOC. It's a great solution for online LMS, MOC platforms. The only thing I like least is that many if the great courses are not affordable for some students which are not free but the great thing on edx is that one can easily apply for price discount using the application and the officials are offering more than 10% discount and it's a great thing for poor or needy students.

Interactive Open-source LMS

As an Instructional Designer and data analyst, I find Open edX a good solution for online courses and educational technology research purposes. It helps me build data-driven e-Learning solutions for higher education faculty and researchers that allow them to deliver customized/personalized learning experiences. The platform Analytics features help educational technology researchers analyze and track students' performance, iterate on course design, and building recommender systems based on primary and authentic learning performance data. Open edX allows me to apply various learning theories, try Instructional design patterns, iterate on course design, and measure students' performance to discover the best learning solution that meets students' needs and improves their learning outcomes.

Pros

Open edX Learning Management System is an integrated eLearning solution with features and tools built to facilitate online course design, delivery, and administration. Also, it's open source and self-hosted. The platform allows for easy student enrollment, learning assessment and grading, learning analysis, learning interventions, peer and social learning, course certification, a support forum, and a user-friendly admin dashboard. Open edX tools encourage self-learning, engage students with interactive content, provide customized learning experiences, and automated intervention based on students' performance.

Cons

Open edX has limited third-party integrations. And it's not easy to set up by non-technical users. It requires a team effort of educational technology integration professionals and Instructional designers. The student user interface needs more enhancements.

The best MOOC site in the web

With EDX I learn a lot about project management, economy and sustainable development. The courses offers had show me how are working some organization to have a better world, using alternative energies and saving a lot of money and resources with it, besides the project management courses had help to organize my own schedule and to begin a new business.

Pros

EDX offers a big range of courses and specializations to improve your knowledge or your academy grade, the quantity of courses offers by EDX are virtually endless and the emcompass a big amount of fields like: project management, development, economy, history, grammar, languages, economy, geography, and so many other that can be so useful for students, academics or general public to learn about an specific topi. EDX offer certificates to check the grade of the course or courses that you do, with this certificate you can improve your resume and demonstrate to the people all that you have learn, even in digital ways this can be possible, because the certificate bring a link to check their authenticated.

Cons

Since a couple of years EDX does not offer so many free certificates, and this can be a big limation for peoples who has not the money to pay. I think that EDX must offer the opportinity to have in every course that they offer a free certified, this can be a great opportunity for people of poors contries to improve their knowledge and abilities and to show it to the others.

Storehouse of knowledge through online courses from the best faculties and mentors

Preferred online destination to learn from the best faculties and mentors.

Pros

Their courses cover almost all the fields starting from languages to technology, religion to crafts. They are one of the best online education service providers giving an option to audit most of their courses for free. The other option is to pursue a verified certificate by paying a fee. It is a win-win for all. Those who are affluent, paying a fee can be like paying a donation! The other advantage of going for a paid certificate is the motivation to learn when you get something by paying your hard earned income instead of free. Not to say, the recognition of a paid certificate by edx also makes your CV/profile appear more professional.

Cons

Despite all the hypes towards video, I still prefer learning the traditional way in a book format, which can be ebook (pdf) in today's digital age. I find their way of organizing learning materials confusing and rather obstructing.
