Online X Programs
MIT Professional Education Launches Online X Programs
Online X Programs is currently offering Tackling the Challenges of Big Data, a four-week course taught entirely online by MIT faculty. The online nature of this course and future Online X Programs courses combines MIT’s breakthrough research with insights from industry, government, the military, and academia, as well as with insights from participants from around the globe. Working professionals interested in gaining the knowledge and skills needed to advance their careers can now do so at a convenient time and place.
Courses are designed to allow participants to gain knowledge at their own pace with a schedule that meets the needs of their lifestyle, giving busy professionals the opportunity to advance their career without disrupting their work-life balance. Classes may involve video lectures, discussion boards, readings, interactive problem-solving, or demo/laboratory work. Participants learn from renowned MIT faculty in the convenience of their own home and collaborate with peers on online discussion boards.
Online X Programs was founded in 2013 and launched its first online course Tackling the Challenges of Big Data in March of 2014. Participants include scientists, engineers, technicians, managers, consultants, and others, who come from industry, government, the military, and academia. Participants reside and work in U.S., U.K., France, India, Israel, and Poland.

Some courses offered by Online X Programs can be run for large groups of employees from the same organization online, or may be part of a Custom Program, taught on campus or an organization’s site.
