DoaneX was created from the partnership between Doane University and edX, a cutting-edge, online educational platform that offers courses from more than 130 member institutions and a diverse group of prominent organizations from around the world. Based in Cambridge, MA and founded by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, edX is focused on transforming online and classroom learning through groundbreaking methodologies, interactive educational experiences and innovative research on an open-source platform.

DoaneX provides Doane University with a platform to enhance our mission of providing an exceptional educational experience to a global audience. As the only university in Nebraska to partner with edX, Doane continues to pave the way as a leader in higher education. Through DoaneX, a variety of courses will be offered to match national and global interest, with the initial programs launching in January 2018.

Program Types

DoaneX's offerings will include program tracks in three categories:
  • The XSeries Certificate program is a series of offerings that provide a deep understanding of an area of study and serves as a great career exploration tool.
  • The Professional Certificate program is a series of competency-focused offerings designed to enhance professional skills and boost your resume.
  • The MicroMasters program is a series of career-focused, master’s-level online offerings recognized by employers and higher education institutions resulting in an edX credential with a pathway to credit at Doane.
  • The MicroBachelors programs are designed to unlock opportunities in jobs that were previously only available if you had a Bachelor’s degree. In addition, it is the first program offering on edX designed for adult learners who have either not started or completed a college degree. Upon successful completion of the program the learner is awarded undergraduate college credits.
