EDX/MITX/COSC: Intro to Comp. Sci. and Python
#1
MITx, edX and COSC are currently offering Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Python.

Successfully completing the course with a 65% and $75 certificate allows for the purchase of 3 credit hours for $300 at COSC.  This seems to be the same set-up as the now-defunct BerkeleyX Ruby/Agile Development courses.  There were many questions at the time of those courses about the transferability of the credits.

I am surprised that this program has continued.  Here's the link:

Seems like a form of credit laundering. Outside of providing the course itself, I wonder how engaged MIT is with the credit granting aspect of this arrangement. At a minimum, I think there would have been some type of approval needed.

EDx seems to always play a fine line for uni credits with their programs. Micromasters let you work on graduate level course work. You can get credits if you enroll in the master, but you never really knows when the micromasters credits will be awarded (could be when you completed the master or when you got accepted)
