Sudan | Age 21
I am 21 years old and live in Sudan. I first heard about edX by reading an article in Technology Worldand have since taken several edX courses, including CS169.1x and CS169.2x Software as a Service, CS188.1x Artificial Intelligence, CS50x Introduction to Computer Science I, 6.002x Circuits and Electronics, and 8.01x Classical Mechanics.
My educational experience is a new and exciting and fun. I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did – I felt that I would not grasp the subject, because of the language barrier, and also because I hate some of the subjects!
When I entered the site for the first time I noticed an elegant design, attractive and easy to navigate, which provided tools for a full course. The method of providing scientific information was clear and by simple. It was very helpful in my study because some of the courses gave me the basic steps that I was missing.
This will help me in the future to be a distinguish and elevate myself academically, which will give me a chance to work very excellent in the field of engineering in my country. I see this as an opportunity to compete for a good job, which means these courses may allow me to achieve my dreams of a future in engineering.
