Hey Friends! so yet another chance I got to grab the edx certificate. This time it was edX – 6.00x(Introduction to Computer Science and Programming) by MITx. Actually I completed this course in last month but I haven’t gotten enough time around to posting it until now.
Well its obvious to know how it happened ?
It was September month when I registered for 6.00x(MITX) to learn one of the popular course by MIT which is Introduction to Computer Science and Programming. Being an MSP(Microsoft Student Partner) and Master degree student its very difficult for me to get some extra time for something else but I decided to manage some extra time and put myself to excel my knowledge with MIT professors. Initially I was not happy with lectures(because Python was new for me) but very soon I felt that I am enjoying the course. Its been hours of concentration, learning every single day. Learned development with python language. Infact getting affection with python. As it is said Hard work always paid of so resulting I able to score 92%(pretty happy because last time I scored only 60 in SAAS course) and now got certificate. Click Me! to view progress report.
MITx 6.00x certificate by edx.
Most of my friends asked me “is there any value of edx certificate in market ?” and I always say to them with smiley face that look my friends certificate doesn’t matter everywhere, anytime. If some one really want to grab quality education at free of cost then I must say edx is recommended for them. I strongly believe “learning is the beginning of wealth and the secret of success is one and only learning”.
At the end of this post I must say – it was great experience once again for me & its not last I’ll keep learning. If you are also passionate about technology and believe in learning then you can explore yourself with best universities of the World.
Answer by Ravi Ranjan Kumar on Quora:
Which of them take more time?
cs50x(Harvard) but you should not worry bcz Harvard let you free from due dates for problem solving. you can submit whenever you got time before fixed date.
Which is more practical in real life?
its very difficult to answer.. but I think cs50x(Harvard) is more practical because it composes less theoretical and give focus on more practical with different programming languages and patterns.
Which have the best teacher ?
Both(No doubt)… for 6.00x I loved learning with Eric Grimson.. he is just an awesome teacher and he has great quality of teaching. you will just everything when you will go through his lectures.
What do you recommend ?
I suggest you go with cs50x first then you can try 6.00x. both are fabulous course and you will learn a lot.
I learned 6.00x(MIT first batch of edx) and I must say that I enjoyed very much. Happy Learning…
