TABLE OF CONTENTS
Edx was originally started as a joint venture out of Havard MIT and Cambridge as a way to create Massive Open Online Courses and a platform for putting those online courses out to the world. 85% of the courses are in English, but some courses equally exist in other languages, trying to solve problems for learners, educators, and businesses
The majority of learners don’t pay for it at Edx, they are learning for free. Will this hold true for learning Affiliate Marketing? We will soon find out. A handful of learners pay for verified tracking, meaning that if they complete a course successfully and they pass, they will get a certificate from Edx and the issuing university.
Edx is a non-profit organization and their mission is to make the best education available to any person in the world. anyone having access to an internet connection.
From the video above, we realize that Edx is really advanced when it comes to certain domains like science. But how advanced are they with regards to online business? We will find out using Affiliate Marketing as our case study.

Alright. We are getting to the more interesting part, in determining whether Edx advanced technology in e-learning equally covers online business. We are going to proceed to start searching for Affiliate Marketing Courses on this platform.
Edx is like Coursera and Udemy. You don’t need to sign up before you are allowed to look for courses. We think this is pretty cool. Follow the screenshots below and see how to find Affiliate Marketing courses at Edx:
==> How To Find Affiliate Marketing Courses
==> Result From Our First Search
Our first attempt to look for ”Affiliate Marketing” on Edx’s database has been a total failure. No relevant results were found, so we will proceed with a more global approach, and look for ”Digital Marketing” instead, and see what happens. This is closest to ”Affiliate Marketing” instead of a more generalized term, ”Marketing”.
==> Second Attempt To Locate Affiliate Marketing Courses. Search term, ”Digital Marketing”
You can see from the image above that 31 results have been displayed. We will now go through each of the courses, and identify those relevant to at least ”Digital Marketing”, since there was no accurate result for ”Affiliate Marketing”.
==> Check out the table below for our findings:

Detailed comments on this table below.
Let’s start on a positive note. We were really impressed to realize that some of the courses related to digital marketing are offered free of charge. This is an excellent advantage for those experienced Affiliate Marketers, who already have an affiliate marketing website running for them. What an excellent opportunity to supplement the knowledge you already have.
We hope by the time you get to these free courses, they would still be free.
Concerning our baby affiliate marketers, here are the reasons why we will not recommend that you start with Edx:
Edx is a great place for Experienced Affiliate Marketers to supplement their existing knowledge.
But if you are still about to start, it means you need websites, free hosting, free keyword tool, free community to contact anyone at any time when you get stuck, free site support to assist you with any website related issues (they work 24/7/365 and the average response time is 5 minutes even on Sundays!), free and easily accessible step by step courses, 1-on-1 coaching from everyone, even from the owners, and from me, and much much more, then EDX WILL NOT HELP YOU.
