The MITx MicroMasters program in Data, Economics, and Development Policy (DEDP) has moved from the edX platform to the new MITx Online platform. As a necessary part of the transition, DEDP Course Pages, archived courses, and other program material has been removed from the edX platform.
All DEDP learners must create an account on the MITx Online platform in order to participate in future DEDP course sessions or access DEDP course content. No DEDP courses—neither future courses nor past, archived courses—will be accessible on the edX platform. You will continue to be able to access your DEDP Program Record, Course Certificates, and Program Credential in the MicroMasters Dashboard.
For new DEDP learners, please refer to this FAQ article to set up your accounts and get enrolled in the DEDP Program. For existing DEDP learners, please refer to this FAQ article to migrate to the MITx Online platform.
Please Note: We very strongly recommend that all existing DEDP learners re-enroll in any and all DEDP courses they previously participated in on the edX platform, in order to re-gain access to previously archived courses.
If you have previously submitted payment for one or more DEDP courses, your Paid status and Proctored Exam attempts will remain valid when you link your MicroMasters Portal account to the MITx Online platform. You will continue to be able to enroll in DEDP courses via the MicroMasters Dashboard when starting the program, and from the MITx Online DEDP Course Pages afterward.
All information about your DEDP program enrollment—including your Program Record, course scores, Proctored Exam scores, Course Certificates, and Program Credential—is stored on your MicroMasters Dashboard account and will remain available to you. If you have already completed one or more DEDP MicroMasters courses, you will be able to continue the program on the new platform. You will not lose what you have earned.
Please Also Note: The course dates for the upcoming Fall 2021 semester of DEDP courses have recently changed. Courses started on October 5, 2021, and will end on December 20, 2021. You may find current course availability on the DEDP Program's Upcoming Dates page.
