LANHAM, Md., Dec. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — edX, a leading global online learning platform from 2U, Inc. (Nasdaq: TWOU), today announced that the University of California, Davis has joined its global partner community with the intent to launch a suite of free-to-try Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and a Professional Certificate program in search engine optimization (SEO). The new courses, available through UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education (CPE), complement UC Davis’ current offerings on edX, which include an Online MBA, an executive education leadership program and four technology boot camps.

“MOOCs are an invaluable tool to scale skill development, especially among those who might not otherwise have access,” said Susan Catron, dean of UC Davis CPE. “Expanding our MOOC portfolio through edX directly supports the University’s efforts to extend the expertise and resources of UC Davis to adult learners looking to reskill or upskill for the new economy.”

The new MOOCs, covering diverse topics including content marketing and SEO, provide learners with the opportunity to take courses from top instructors and professionals in their industries. Both SEO and digital marketing have been identified as top technology skills for 2023 and beyond.

“Since establishing our partnership in 2017, we’ve worked closely with UC Davis to develop high-quality online programs that have resulted in over 1,700 learners advancing their education through boot camps, executive education and an Online MBA,” said Andrew Hermalyn, president of partnerships at edX. “The launch of its first MOOCs on edX expands the accessible learning pathways available to students around the globe to pursue various levels of education at one of the world’s top universities.”
