Keep Students on Track With Free Online Classes From Harvard, MIT, and More

Article by edX For Business

In an effort to help as many universities and students as possible across the globe affected by COVID-19, edX and our founding partners, Harvard and MIT, are joining together to launch an initiative for accredited academic institutions around the world.

Through June 30, 2020, any accredited academic institution in need of additional learning resources can use this program to gain access to a free catalog of high-quality, relevant courses and programs from participating top universities. Learn how your college or university can use the program to:

  • Support your remote learning efforts
  • Easily expand and add new topics to your curriculum offerings
  • Augment your already-online learning programs
  • Offer courses as stand-alone options
  • Keep students on the path to their academic goals

These are tough times, but we’re hopeful that together we can create opportunities to provide students with access to high-quality learning opportunities and a like-minded community of online learners.

Content That Keeps Students Actively Learning

Based on learning science, edX courses are designed to be as engaging and robust as on-campus classes.

Our collection of online learning content builds skills using techniques such as writing reflections, discussion, and problem solving. Learning experiences promote analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application through 54 different assessment types that guide students towards achieving learning objectives.

Top, Highly Relevant Courses and Programs

Our founding partners, Harvard and MIT, have joined this initiative and we expect other edX partners from across the globe are also joining soon. Stay tuned as we continue to grow this catalog of free content to include additional edX partner universities in the coming weeks.

Choose from some of the most popular offerings on edX.org and in the subject areas most in-demand in academia, including courses in data analytics, business, computer science, engineering, and more.

Expand Your Online Offering, Free Through June 30, 2020

Empower your students to join thousands of other learners from across the globe in an online learning community with free access to select courses through June 30, 2020.
