Finding and Enrolling in Courses in the edX App

Finding Courses

All of the courses on are available on the edX app. However, depending on the type of problems used in the course, you might not be able to complete all the course assignments or exams using the app.

To browse courses, select Discover Courses in the edX app, or select Discover from the app’s main menu. You do not need to have an edX account or be logged in to browse courses. From the My Courses page in the app, you can also browse courses by tapping the search icon in the top corner.

When you find a course that interests you, select the course to view its About page. The About page includes course details, such as the course start date, the length of the course and effort required, whether a certificate is offered, the language that the course is taught in, and so on. Many About pages include a informational video about the course.
