I am familiar with edX website because I have taken a course in quantum mechanics at edX. My experience at edX is great because I learned much from that course. In addition, edX offers an option for verified certificate, and this option is helpful for people who want from their employers to verify their certificates. Finally, taking courses at edX is very helpful and recommended for everyone.
