it must be taught at the graduate level, offered for credit by an accredited university or college, and pre-approved by our assistant superintendent. Because this course wasn’t the typical graduate level course (i.e., learners do not receive a transcript with this credit information), Mary’s district requested more information.
“So I emailed edX President Anant Agarwal for help with explaining the course to my district. Even though I was one of tens of thousands of online students in PH207x, guess what? I got a personal response from edX. EdX confirmed that the course was indeed taught at the graduate level, that it is offered for credit typically and is graded. With this clarification, my district approved the course to be accepted for graduate credit.”
Mary’s journey with edX continues. She’s now taking 7.00x Introduction to Biology: The Secret of Life.
