    With 3 different MOOC-based credentials currently being offered by edX, potential students may find themselves scratching their heads in confusion.

    EdX was the first MOOC provider to offer multiple-course certificate programs known as XSeries which are designed for more in-depth learning than the single course options. Two years later, edX launched the MicroMasters™ credential - "a series of graduate level courses from top universities designed to advance your career". These programs grant credit that can count towards a Masters degree, allowing students to pursue an accelerated and less expensive education path. Then came the Professional Certificate Programs - "a series of courses designed by industry leaders and top universities to build and enhance critical professional skills".

    To help learners distinguish between these three credentials, MoocLab has published a comprehensive guide to edX credentials looking at what each one offers and how to choose between them. Click on the link below to open the guide.
