Thanks for posting this. The price seems good at under $10,000. That's alot more competitive than the $30,000 Master's of Accounting offered through Coursera.

I wouldn't assume that the upcoming degrees are also under $10,000. They are probably not all from the same school. Coursera has a Master's for $15,000 and another for $30,000.
Considering tech Masters degrees or BA-CS.
Finished 1st Masters. Working on 2nd, but may take a break to do another program.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.

I was going to post something about this... Also, I read in an article that edx is working on developing some "MicroBachelors" as well.

Cool, I thought they would be offering more/much faster - edX already has a few MicroMasters that they offer for partial credit, it ranges from 20, 25%, up to 33% of the entire Master's degree offered by various universities globally known. Some of their partner degrees can be had for $10,000 - in addition to the price of the MicroMasters of course - See here: https://www.edx.org/micromasters
Next: NationsU MTS, WGU for MSML & MBA ITM (Start January 2019)
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)

I've been wondering if the masters of science in electrical engineering that edx mentions is the same one that UC Boulder has been working on:

I've had my eye on a few of those micro masters now in addition to the mooc msee. Of particular interest to me was the Pennx Robotics and MITx Principals of manufacturing.

Do you think the Micromasters credential alone(without completing the corresponding schools master's program) is valuable to employers or different grad schools?

A MicroMasters (similar to Udacity's Nanodegree options) in my view is just like a graduate certificate, it's only at most 9-12 credits of graduate level courses. It will only be valuable in the field you intend to go into and should be on par with other graduate-level certificates offered elsewhere.

I like Udacity's Nanodegree options, for example, Data Analytics, WGU can use that as an "entry" option for their MS Data Analytics, it's about half the price of a MircroMasters. Essentially, I would rank them as follows in order of recommendation/value.

Masters (30-36 credits), Graduate Diploma (18-24 credits), (Grad Cert/Micromasters or Nanodegree 9-15 credits)
In fact, anything that gets you graduate credits on the cheap/easy/fast method is what I recommend, EdX micro masters might just be the ticket.

These 'micromasters' will I get official transcripts after I take them? Loke lets say I do the IoT or Robotics micromasters will I be able to get credits that I can transfer to say COSC to finish their BS in Engineering or Technology Studies?

That edX masters in EE so awesome if I can get it for under 10 000....

I think they will be able to accommodate some credits, you'll have to chat with admin with COSC as COSC uses edx for a few transfer courses, see here: https://www.edx.org/charter-oak

Armstrong, you'll come across issues if you want to transfer to COSC or most of the schools, that's because most RA schools only allow two Bachelors degrees. You will need to decide on two degrees out of the three - TESU BALS, LDAS and COSC.

There is an alternative if you want to take it, haha. Excelsior allows third bachelors degrees and their BS IT degrees are ABET accredited. Out of the Big 3 and WGU, for IT - I only recommend Excelsior (ABET) or WGU (Non ABET).

I looked at their program briefly, it's mainly CS/CIS courses, I wonder what their no concentration or cybersecurity concentration is like, I haven't looked at the full pdf. https://www.excelsior.edu/programs/techn...lor-degree

@bjcheung I know the limit thing is crazy. Which is why I want to weigh my options before I graduate, right now I'm finishing up the BALS just to 'tick the box'...but for a technical degree I'm really worried. I dont want to waste it on the LDAS when 'engineering' ABET or not would look better on the resume and help me with grad school. I would finish the Comp Sci but to be honest Comp Sci bores me a little I like electronics. I'm still undecided right now I'm doing generic technical courses algebra, trig, precalc, calc I, II, III, discrete math, stats, linear algebra, phys I, phys II, bio, chem, programming etc like courses I know will fit into all the programs I've looked at. The more I think about it, the more COSC engineering studies looks like the better candidate. I would do the comp sci or ESET at TESU since the tution is relatively low for those programs but some of the grad schools I looked at specifically ask for engineering not engineering tech...So I dont think comp sci will work.

I figure over the next year I'll just get myself ready with all the general prereqs and then decide, cause in the tech and EE domain it seems some new options are opening up!
