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.

its's good when you have the commitment

in general, I'm thankful that there are some people who are really nice to provide ​free education for others for free and it's always good to learn and continue learning

Pros

I like that it provides​ me with almost any field of study I'm looking for and it happens to get educated from really smart people sometimes for free

Cons

I would prefer if there was a way to make animation lectures which means the professor writes the contents and there will be animations who explains it. I feel sometimes animations can remove the boring feeling of me.

It is an excellent platform, with material of high academic content, very updated with the latest tr

I have done several courses that are on the platform, which have given a value in my career, I have applied several study techniques that have increased my learning ability.

Pros

What I like most is that you can do the courses as a completely free auditor, this is supported by many universities, you have many videos that make the courses easier and they are in several languages.

Cons

I would like the evaluations to be more interactive with videos and dynamic exercises, that in the courses have laboratories totake virtual practices.
