The Remote Access Program (RAP) is providing a limited number of enrollment codes for FREE access to certificate courses through edX, a popular online learning platform, with participating institutions. Over 2,500 interactive online courses are available from many of the world’s top universities including Cornell, MIT, Harvard, Berkeley, Princeton, & Dartmouth. Topics include biology, business, chemistry, computer science, economics, finance, electronics, engineering, food and nutrition, history, humanities, languages, law, literature, math, medicine, music, philosophy, physics, science, statistics and more.
Each course enrollment will be made with an enrollment code, which can be entered at the course checkout page. Learners can navigate to edx.org, select their course, enroll in the Verified Track, enter their enrollment code instead of a payment method, and begin their course. The codes are restricted to use by learners with a Cornell email tied to their edX account. Instructions are included in the attached guide.
Please note that we have a limited number of enrollment codes and each code can only be used to enroll in one course, and cannot be used more than once, even if the you unenroll from the course. Additionally only courses from participating partners will be available for enrollment (find the list here), excluding Master’s and Professional Education courses. You must sign up by June 30 and request an enrollment code from Tammy Babcock at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please explore edX and find a course you are committed to taking before you request a code.
We also recommend taking DemoX, a fun and interactive course designed to help you explore the edX learning experience.
