|About The Provider||
edX is the trusted platform for education and learning. Founded by Harvard and MIT, edX is home to more than 20 million learners, the majority of top-ranked universities in the world, and industry-leading companies. As a global nonprofit, edX is transforming traditional education, removing the barriers of cost, location and access.
Offering 2000 online courses from 140 leading institutions, edX helps people gain new skills, advance their careers, or learn for fun with courses in computer programming, data science, business, finance, marketing, engineering, language, humanities, science and more.
Almost all courses on edX are free to try. For a fee, learners can submit graded assignments and earn certificates of completion which can be highlighted on their resumes or LinkedIn profile. This is the commissionable part of the program.
Many of our courses are part of larger programs for learners to acquire deep skills in a field. Our MicroMasters programs consist of a series of graduate level courses for those looking for advanced training and our Professional Certificate programs provide a career pathway for those new to a field.
Whether you’re new to teaching online or are looking for new teaching strategies to implement in your online class, our goal is that you find value in this carefully constructed experience we’ve designed for you. This learning experience is adapted from ASU’s flagship workshop for ASU Online faculty, called "Master Class for Teaching Online".
In this self-paced experience, you’ll learn about topics that are recognized to be effective in online teaching, yet they really can be applied in any modality. So if you’re teaching remotely, in a hybrid format, or in a traditional classroom, our goal is that you’ll learn something new that you can apply immediately.
Even though this is an on-demand and self-paced resource, we encourage you to join the community forums created specifically for this experience. You will have an opportunity to contribute by sharing your own ideas and philosophies around provided prompts. It's a great way to connect to a broader teaching and learning community and to the knowledge and experiences that reside with your fellow participants.
This course is NOT edX platform training. It is designed to facilitate peer sharing of strategies for designing and teaching online courses.
