January 25th – EdX

With the influx of academies and websites offering classes and “knowledge” on the internet, it’s difficult to know what to trust and not. With Harvard and MIT, they always seem to have a finger on the pulse of how things are changing. And while I’m not saying that the academies are bad (I’ll be reviewing quite a few of them here) EdX is a vetted source which a lot of college professors are offering their classes AND giving you a badge or certificate to use on future resumes.

January 25th – EdX

EdX is the brainchild of Harvard and MIT, yes, the same Harvard with the prestige and is in the new for possibly offering free tuition to brake down that barrier to college. EdX is an improved Blackboard or Moodle that isn’t within the organization to use it.  EdX is another MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) with around 90 partnerships with Universities and Companies to provide you, free of charge, an education.  I suggest looking around – and diving in, it’s quite the rabbit hole and who knows who’ll emerge out of it! (Probably you, with some more knowledge…)
