En résumé

Read fully to understand the verified-certificate option. Join Professor Eric Lander and the MITx Biology team in a newly restructured introductory biology learning experience. All original 7.00x course materials are available here for exploration and completion, including video and interactive problem sets and exams. We strongly encourage you to work through the activities, towards a goal of learning biology. In this version of the course, we have kept the course content the same while optimizing the course settings for learning: instant feedback after trying problems and all content available at all times. We now offer a more thorough and robust means of certifying edX learners in their mastery of the MITx introductory biology content, through a new MITx 7.00x Introduction to Biology Competency Exam. This exciting option is available ONLY to those who register for the verified-certificate track, and successful completion of this exam is the only assessment that counts toward a certificate. We highly recommend preparing for the Competency Exam certification by using the current course materials and MIT OpenCourseWare problems. The next Competency Exam will be open March 19, 2019 to March 25, 2019.

7.00x is an introductory level biology course hosted by professor Eric Lander, who was one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project. The course content reflects the topics taught in the MIT introductory biology courses and many biology courses across the world. As a learner, you will first focus on the structure and function of macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins. You will discover how changes in the structure of some of these macromolecules alter their functions and what the implications of such changes have on human health. As you continue in the course, you will apply an understanding of heredity and information flow within cells to human health and disease and will learn about molecular biological techniques and their potential to impact our changing world. After you complete this course, you will have a foundation in biology that will allow you to understand the remarkable medical revolution going on today.

MITx 7.00x: Introduction to Biology – The Secret of Life will let you explore the mysteries of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, recombinant DNA technology and genomics, and rational medicine. We are excited to take this journey with you!

Le concepteur

Le Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), en français Institut de technologie du Massachusetts, est un institut de recherche américain et une université, spécialisé dans les domaines de la science et de la technologie. Situé à Cambridge, dans l'État du Massachusetts, à proximité immédiate de Boston, au nord-est des États-Unis, le MIT est souvent considéré comme une des meilleures universités mondiales.

Il édite la Technology Review, une revue scientifique consacrée aux sciences de l'ingénieur et à l'innovation.

La plateforme

EdX est une plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne (dite FLOT ou MOOC). Elle héberge et met gratuitement à disposition des cours en ligne de niveau universitaire à travers le monde entier. Elle mène également des recherches sur l'apprentissage en ligne et la façon dont les utilisateurs utilisent celle-ci. Elle est à but non lucratif et la plateforme utilise un logiciel open source.

EdX a été fondée par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology et par l'université Harvard en mai 2012. En 2014, environ 50 écoles, associations et organisations internationales offrent ou projettent d'offrir des cours sur EdX. En juillet 2014, elle avait plus de 2,5 millions d'utilisateurs suivant plus de 200 cours en ligne.

Les deux universités américaines qui financent la plateforme ont investi 60 millions USD dans son développement. La plateforme France Université Numérique utilise la technologie openedX, supportée par Google.
