EdX.org is the online home of EdX, an organization that says they are not only committed to giving students free access to higher learning education, but also to educational research which improve the industry as a whole.
How Does It Work?
Members can go on to their website and find a class they are interested in taking, either by searching through available courses by subject, like Art, Technology, Languages, and many more, or by the school which offers the course, like Harvard, Wellesley, Berkeley, and many more.
Courses are taken through watching online video lectures, assignments, and interaction and collaboration with your peers in the course.
A large part of the purpose and mission of EdX is provide people around the world options to access higher learning education for free. While some of their classes do have a fee for students who wish to receive a verified certificate at the end of the course, these same classes are offered free to students who wish to take them without receiving a certificate.
Customers who choose the pay for the verified certificate version of a course have two weeks from the start date of the class to downgrade to regular enrollment and request a refund of their fees. After this two week period passes, no refunds will be given.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
In general, EdX is a well respected and liked provider of online educational classes and higher learning opportunities.

When i found edX at first i would see the courses for fun in free time and now i see it as something professional, affordable from universities respectful worldwide. I took already 2 certificates looking to learn more, i became learning addict, adapted a growth mindset. Thank you to them that they exist and offer knowledge and certificates, degrees for long distance.
edX is a great site to learn from places like Harvard, MIT, Berkeley and other universities online. The courses are mostly free (although graded assignments and certificates of completion do cost money). If you want to learn something for your career or just for fun, edX is awesome.
Offer online classes that are easy to cheat on. Platform is confusing, mixed up and help is via email that usually does not help. Very frustrating company.
The website is so gawd awful and there were no videos, no introduction video, no explanation of assignments or web navigations.
Then the course gets into green for symbolism. I think they are reading too much into the text. There is no outside resources so you have to get your own if the content covers the course.
And I'd just like to say my snot is green, does that symbolize Ireland? My urine is yellow, does that symbolize lemons?
I give them a D- but I will monitor other courses.
Smells like Trump University as of today.
