  1. This post is misleading in a critical point. The Edx courses offer “certificates of mastery” upon completion which per the site are not guaranteed to be accepted for credit by any university, including the one offering the course you take.

  2. Bob,
    You are right; It’s certificates and not degrees. I appreciate you letting me know. I corrected the post. That said, since I received the piece yesterday from a credible source, it might be something that hasn’t been posted on their website yet. I’ll keep an eye on the new developments.
