Mentioned 3rd party university
I took courses online from edX, and one course that was particularly interesting was from MIT. I feel connected and it does give inspiration for me in studying the topic. Do I include this story mentioning MIT in the essay of other university (Harvard)?
If not, I could just state that I learned from edX, but which way is better?

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.
I am just giving you my opinion, so you can totally ignore me. Harvard specifically has a place to write any online certificated and courses you took, so you should definitely put it there. In all other universities (except MIT if you are applying there) I would recommend just giving the name of the course/topic, without specifying the university. Again, this is just my opinion :).
