IBL News | New York

edX Inc., now part of 2U, recently announced its first MicroBachelors program with IBM in Full Stack Cloud Application Development.

This program of 11 courses in seven months and at $600 is credit-backed and worth up to three college credits from Thomas Edison State University.

It is designed for learners with no prior programming or cloud experience and sets them for an entry-level role as a full stack developer — one of the top 15 tech jobs for 2021.

The development of edX MicroBachelors programs is supported by American Student Assistance, Boeing, Lumina Foundation, the Truist Foundation, Walmart, the Jeremy M. and Joyce E. Wertheimer Foundation, and the Yidan Prize Foundation.

“IBM is committed to creating learning content on edX that is accessible, affordable, and relevant, and this MicroBachelors program does just that,” said Rav Ahuja, Global Program Director IBM Skills Network.
