What types of problems can I complete in the edX app?

You can use the edX app to complete most of the problems in your assignments. EdX courses can use a variety of problem types, and some courses might include problem types that cannot be completed in the app.

For example, you can use the edX app to answer multiple choice questions, but you cannot use it to draw molecules or design circuits. To complete problems that require complex actions, you must use a web browser.

Note: EdX recommends that you complete all of your graded assignments in a web browser on a computer. If your course includes timed exams or proctored exams, you cannot take them using the edX app.

In the edX app, you can complete problems that you answer in one of these ways:

  • Checkbox selection
  • Drag and drop selection
  • Dropdown list selection
  • Multiple choice selection
  • Math expression input
  • Numerical input
  • Text input
