Field(s) of study:
There are currently seven courses offered for Fall 2012 but their goal is to offer a wide variety of courses across disciplines.
The course are available to anyone in the world – from any demographic – who has interest in advancing their own knowledge.
For the courses in Fall 2012, those certificates will be free. There is a plan to charge a modest fee for certificates in the future.
EdX will be available to anyone in the world with computer with internet connection, and in general, there will not be an admissions process.
To apply for an EdX course, just simply complete the online signup form. Enrolling will create your unique student record in the edX database, allow you to register for classes, and to receive a certificate on successful completion. Applications are accepted throughout the year.
