DEDP MicroMasters learners have two different dashboards. Each dashboard has different capabilities, and you will need to access and utilize both Dashboards in order to successfully complete the DEDP MicroMasters Program.
We understand that this situation can be confusing for some learners. Unfortunately, the DEDP MicroMasters program requires two different dashboards due to its unique structure, particularly its special Personal Pricing feature.
Please continue reading for a detailed discussion of where to find each DEDP Dashboard and what you will use them for!
The MicroMasters Portal Dashboard
The MicroMasters Portal Dashboard is located at https://micromasters.mit.edu/dashboard/. This dashboard is often the first one encountered by DEDP learners. It is where you will calculate your Personal Price and submit payment for DEDP courses. You must also use this dashboard to enroll in Proctored Exams for DEDP courses and access your DEDP Program Record. The Portal Dashboard also conveniently records your course and Proctored Exam history, and displays the highest score you have earned for each online course and its Proctored Exam—as well as other useful information about courses.
Learners may enroll in each DEDP online course once, for their first enrollment in that course, directly from the Portal Dashboard. However, all subsequent DEDP online course enrollment must occur from within the MITx Online Learning Platform (see Course Enrollment, below).
The MicroMasters Portal Dashboard shows your personal account information, and contains a block for each DEDP course, appearing approximately like the following image:
MicroMasters Portal Dashboard
Located at: https://micromasters.mit.edu/dashboard/
- Calculate your Personal Course Price
- Submit payment for DEDP courses
- Enroll in Proctored Exams
- Access your DEDP MicroMasters Program Record
MITx Online Dashboard
The MITx Online Dashboard is part of the MITx Online Learning Platform—on which the DEDP MicroMasters Program is offered. It is located at https://mitxonline.mit.edu/dashboard/. This dashboard is where you access the courseware for your DEDP online courses. It is also where you will access the courseware for each DEDP course's Proctored Exam—although you must first enroll in the Proctored Exam course via the MicroMasters Portal Dashboard. Access to the courseware for DEDP MicroMasters online courses (and also Proctored Exam courses) is only available via the MITx Online Dashboard.
It is not possible to calculate your Personal Price or to submit payment for DEDP courses nor is it possible to access your DEDP MicroMasters Program Record via the MITx Online Dashboard. These functions are only available through the MicroMasters Portal Dashboard (described above).
The MITx Online Dashboard lists all of the course sessions that you have enrolled in on the MITx Online platform—including currently active course sessions, archived course sessions, and future course sessions. The dashboard appears approximately like the following image:
MITx Online Dashboard
Located at: https://mitxonline.mit.edu/dashboard/
- Enroll in DEDP course sessions
- Access courseware for DEDP online course sessions
- including lecture materials, coursework, assessments, and exams
- Access and complete DEDP Proctored Exams
It is possible to enroll in a DEDP online course directly from the MicroMasters Portal Dashboard one time—the first time you enroll in that course. All subsequent DEDP online course enrollments must be made through the MITx Online Learning Platform.
To enroll in a DEDP MicroMasters online course, navigate to the MITx Online Learning Platform at https://mitxonline.mit.edu/, ensure that you are signed in (See Creating Accounts, below), locate and click on the course you wish to enroll in, and click the "Enroll now" button on the Course Page.
In order to re-enroll in a DEDP course—either in this semester or an upcoming semester—you must do so from the MITx Online course page, instead of directly from your MicroMasters Portal Dashboard (enrolling directly from the Portal Dashboard only works for your first enrollment in a course). Please find below links to the Course Pages for each DEDP Course. Simply navigate to the course page(s) of your choosing and click the red "Enroll" button to enroll in the current semester.
