Enabling transformation

Start learning from the world’s best institutions

Every individual has the potential to create change, whether in their life, their community, or the world. The transformative power of education is what unlocks that potential. Yet, access to high-quality education has been a privilege of the few. Back in 2012, we realized it was a time for a seismic shift in learning. From the tried and true to the leading edge. From “for some” to “for all.”

By opening the classroom through online learning, edX empowers millions of learners to unlock their potential and become changemakers.

Your edX learning experience is grounded in cutting edge cognitive science. With more than two dozen distinct learning features to help you achieve your goals, our approach follows three key principles:

  • Experience

    Learn new knowledge and skills in a variety of ways, from engaging video lectures and dynamic graphics to data visualizations and interactive elements.

  • Practice

    Demonstrating your knowledge is a critical part of learning. edX courses and programs provide a space to practice with quizzes, open response assessments, virtual environments, and more.

  • Apply

    Learning on edX transforms how you think and what you can do, and translates directly into the real world—immediately apply your new capabilities in the context of your job.
