DEDP Webinar Recording
On January 9, the DEDP team hosted a webinar to help learners prepare for spring courses. The team gave an overview of the program and answered questions live in this one-hour event. If you missed the event or if you'd like to rewatch it, you can access the Zoom recording here.
We are excited to offer scholarships for learners in different regions of the world! The scholarship application for the spring term is closed. More information about scholarships for the next term will be available in April 2024.
Grading Policy Update
Starting in the spring term of 2023, proctored exams will be worth 70% of the total course grade (rather than 60%). All other coursework will now be worth 30% of the total course grade:
Total Course Grade = (70% * Proctored Exam Score) + (30% * All Other Coursework)
However, learners will no longer have to pass the proctored exam to earn a course certificate. As before, the passing grade for every course is 50%.
Learners who submit payment for a DEDP course must now sit for that course’s proctored exam in the same semester that they submitted payment. If you’re not sure about your status, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can review the proctored exam policies in more detail on the Proctored Exams page.
