To provide a course for a friend or a group of up to 100 you can purchase enrollment codes. Then, you can distribute the enrollment codes to others so they can apply them to upgrade free of charge.
To purchase an enrollment code in a single course, log in to edx.org then on the course enrollment page scroll down to Interested in this course for your Business or Team? and select the Purchase now button.
To purchase enrollment codes for a program, please review How can I purchase a program for someone else?
You will then see the payment screen and can select the quantity of course enrollment codes you would like to purchase.
(Please note that the maximum number of seats you can purchase is 100. For groups of 100 or more learners, we would encourage you to take a look at our edX Business page. You can fill out a form to be contacted by our Business Development team, who will get in touch with you to discuss your training needs.)
By purchasing, you agree to the following terms:
Each code is valid for the current session of the one course covered and can be used only one time.
You are responsible for distributing codes to your learners.
Each code will expire in one year from date of purchase or, if earlier, once the course session is closed.
If a course is not designated as self-paced, you should confirm that a course run is available before expiration.
You may not resell codes to third parties.
All sales final. No refunds.
After you make the purchase, the enrollment codes will be emailed to you and you will receive the following email notification:
Dear [first name],
Thank you for purchasing access to [Course title]. Your code(s) are ready to distribute.
1. Download and save the enrollment codes for this course [link]
2. Distribute them to your team. Check out edX best practices for distributing codes.
3. Team members can redeem codes any time.
To view your payment information, log in to edX to see your Order History under Account Settings.
Should you have any questions, contact edX for Business.
Once you receive the email confirmation with the enrollment codes, it is up to you to distribute those codes to the individuals. Each individual will be able to click a URL and get straight into the course without paying, but will be required to create an account first on edX. Be sure to assign one code per person and track which code is associated with which person.
