Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Edx reviews

"World class education without leaving your home." What do you like best about edX? 1. Getting world-class education for free from the top-ranked universities and world-class faculties. 2. As a freelance web developer, I acquired the majority of my skills from this platform for free. It provided me with all the materials and practice assignments that helped me gain my skills, and I became confident. 3. One can pay an additional amount to get certificates for completed courses by you and showcase that in your resume. 4. When you opt for a paid subscription, your assignments will be reviewed by one of the world's best professors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. What do you dislike about edX? 1. Subscription and certificate charges are similar for every country. It should be different for different countries as purchase power parity is lower in poor in developing and under-developed countries. 2. edX is only involved with STEM related subjects and you won't find courses like bakery, photography etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. What problems is edX solving and how is that benefiting you? 1. I am a freelance web developer, and I learned most of the skills required to become a successful freelancer from edX. 2. edX was a turning point in my career as it provided me the structred learning from one of the world's most prestigious universities and great faculties and it made me focus on learning without worrying about quality of content.

edX (free) (Pricing Varies By Course at edX)(Opens in a new window) does not look like a university. There is no campus, no library, no dormitories, and no tuition. Founded in the spring of 2012 by faculty at MIT and Harvard, edX is very much the wunderkind of academics. Its courses are supplied by some of the world's most prestigious institutions, including UC Berkeley, Boston University, as well as both founding institutions. However, with several million students, edX serves a larger learning community than the entire UC system. But make no mistake, edX is no university-killer. While participants can audit classes and earn proof of enrollment (Honor Code Certificates) for free, edX does not offer the credentialing, networking, or communal experience of a traditional university. Instead, think of edX as a platform that enables admittedly large and well-heeled universities to reach traditional and non-traditional students alike. Typically, those learners are adults interested in the sciences, but that is expanding, thanks to a high school initiative and professional education program.
