Can you put edx courses on a college application and do they help?
I am already considering taking an edx course regardless but I was wondering if they could be used on a college application. If so, where on my application should I put it and does it help my resume/look good? Also, if you have any edx class recommendations lmk, I'm particularly interested in engineering/computer science but I also just want to take an interesting class in general so if you have a favorite no matter the subject just lmk and I might take it. (I'm also super into psychology so if you know any good classes...)

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
They do! Right now colleges are looking for people who still continue to take initiative and learn on their own, especially during COVID-19. Taking an EDx course will definitely help on a college application. I say you should take HarvardX's CS50 course, given your interest in comp sci. There are some psych classes offered by Harvard as well. :))
