    Now that's a good opportunity. I've been using edX for sometime now. Extremely useful. :thumb:

    Hey guys, got an email from eDX today - thought anyone interested in this course should see it. Not "as good" as I first thought.

    ~EDIT~
    Basically, my understanding is ---
    They want you to pay $250 for them to verify the certificate. Otherwise you will get a certificate, however no proof that its yours.

    Anyone know how these courses work?
    Can you pace it depending on your available time?
    Can you start at any time and how long will it be available?
