EdX/MITx/COSC Credit: CS/Python: Starts Jan. - eriehiker - 12-02-2019

The EdX/MITx/COSC computer science/python programming course is running again in January.  It is $75 for the verified certificate and then $100 per credit - 3 credits - for COSC credit.  There is a 20 percent off coupon for the verified certificate for Cyber Monday.  Code: CYBER20.

Some have questioned the utility of COSC transcripted credit.

There is a free python course at onlinedegree:

Yeah, I'm curious if TESU would accept it for AOS for computer science, but I'm not going to bug them again. The edx course.

What is the course number and name when it is transcripted? Would it be an elective credit at COSC? I can't seem to find that exact course name in their catalog or any info about how it applies to their degrees. Has anyone taken it?

no specific course number is mentioned, but it looks like a generic "Introduction to Computer Science"
