edXDEMO101: edX Demo


A fun and interactive course designed to help you explore the edX learning experience. Perfect to take before you start your course.

About this Course

This demonstration is specifically designed for new students to explore and to learn how to take an edX course. Inside the demo course you will find three example weeks and lessons, containing the sorts of interactive tools found in many courses, including: videos, readings, interactive questions, laboratories, a molecule editor, an electronic circuit simulator, an interactive periodic table, a protein builder and a molecule structure tool. You’ll learn the many ways to answer questions, with hints and grading techniques explained. We’ll even keep track of your “work” in the demo and show you how you scored in your own progress report.
