Our amazing community of students from around the world shared their love of edX on Facebook this Valentine’s Day, telling us about favorite courses, professors, areas of study, and ways in which edX is changing the world!
Here’s what some of you had to say:
“This week I started a computer science course and next month we are taking a spirituality course. Such a range of diverse courses. If you are looking for something to engage your brain this is the place to do it.” — Tay Shea
“[EdX] got me through engineering school.” — R Raúl Alda
“I love edX, because it sees people as persons who have their own interests and gives them opportunity to foster them. It gives the value to education and launches it as a right of everyone and not the privilege of some. EdX motivates to share, create together, teach, learn, think, explore, make, collaborate and reflect.” — Aušra Raulušonytė
“For the first time in my life I have really feel the joy of learning as a journey in the seek of rationality and truth. Not as a duty or a family responsibility.” — Nguyen Minh Tuong
“I love edX because it allows me connect with some of the greatest teachers in the world for free! The quiz system is fantastic and keeps me engaged.” — Andrew Ribeiro
“I love edX because I am learning about topics that are fundamental that are connected to my core values in life and I’m doing it with others that share the same interests. I love edX because the courses offered also speak to my overall joy of learning. I love edX because it is great for the brain. I love edX because it makes learning more widely accessible.” — Yamil Y. Baez
“Have you seen the new edX class ‘Einstein’s Revolution’? Not only am I more glued to it than to a marathon sitting of a show on Netflix, I now have stories to tell my students, and new ideas for my online classes. That’s why I love edX!” — Elizabeth Bell
“I love edX because it makes education and knowledge available to everyone as long as they have a computer and an internet connection. Education is a universal right and edX is its universal provider.” — Jessica MG
“I love edX because I can learn about the things I care about. I used to think it would be a very long time (and expensive) before I could finally learn robotics, but edX changed that.” — Sandra Mendoza
