Online education provider EdX is taking a big step into the undergraduate market by launching two programs called MicroBachelors that students can complete on its platform and earn credits toward a bachelor’s degree.┬áStudents can earn credits in an information technology program offered by Western Governors University. A computer science program from New York University is pending approval for credit from Thomas Edison State University. The credits can also transfer to another institution that accepts them.┬áThe fully online programs consist of three courses each, cost between $500 and $1,500 total, and take roughly six months to complete.
