Microsoft Expands its Partnership with EdX and Launches Seven Software Development Courses


Microsoft will offer seven courses on the portal in April.

These courses, taught by Microsoft experts, are now open for enrollment.

  • Introduction to TypeScript, a design-time language that enables JavaScript programmers to manage projects on any platform. This course is co-authored by Anders Hejlsberg, creator of Turbo Pascal, Delphi, C#, and TypeScript.
  • Introduction to Bootstrap, an open-source UI framework created by Twitter to enable the creation of responsive, mobile-first web pages. Bootstrap has become a de facto standard for web design.

Microsoft has already developed an Xblock to enable course creators to embed Office Mix lectures into their edX courses.

The software giant plans to continue investing on edX and Open edX ecosystem through new software developments.
