arrow_drop_down How are the courses delivered?   ¶

SC0x - Supply Chain Analytics, is delivered on a learner-paced schedule. This course contains the mathematical concepts used throughout all the other courses and is packaged in modules based on content. It is the reference course for all the others and so remains available as needed almost continually. Each run of SC0x will have a final exam on a date set by the course team.The course will close briefly after each scheduled final exam and learners can enroll in the next run of the course if needed. All course content, practice problems, exams, reading materials, and external links are delivered through the course platform on edX. In SC0x there is one final exam that will count for 100% of your grade. (Read more about exams and verification below.)

Courses SC1x - SC4x are delivered on a weekly, instructor-paced schedule. Every week at 15:00 UTC, beginning on the course start date, you receive course materials and instructions for each week. A full course syllabus, expected deadlines and course requirements are released in the first orientation week of each course called "Week 0".

All course instruction is pre-recorded. Any instructor interaction takes place within the course forums or using the course email. Many of our courses feature "live events", when instructors and guests appear live on video for interactive sessions.

In SC1x-SC4x, midterms and final exams are released for 72 hours on week six and twelve respectively. Once you open an exam you have between two and four hours to complete it, depending on the exam. All deadlines within the course also occur at 15:00 UTC.

If you have never taken a course on edX you can try Demo_x.

The edX platform is merging with 2U Inc. Our MIT course team that creates and delivers the content (the videos, problems, etc.) has not changed. All content will still come from MIT, remain at MIT standards, and be delivered by MIT course leads.
