edX's All-New iPhone and Android Apps Allow to Watch Course Content and Basic Assessments


edX launched on December 7 an improved version of its app for iPhones and Android devices. It provides a much more complete course experience for learners.

In addition to downloading and watching videos without an Internet connection, learners are able to view course content (HTML and text components), as well as complete basic assessments (checkbox, dropdown, multiple choice, and text or numerical input problems).

There is currently a free edX mobile app for iPhones on the Apple App Store and another for Android on the Google Play Store. For iPads and Android tablets it’s not available yet.

  • See the Mobile App chapter in edX Learner’s Guide.
