The Linux Foundation has announced that there have been two million enrolments to date across all of its online courses offered on the edX platform. These open source training courses have continually increasing rates of enrolment growth as the curriculum continues to expand, with offerings covering technologies like cloud infrastructure, blockchain, networking, and DevOps.

Linux Foundation Training & Certification offers more than two dozen courses on edX, all of which can be audited at no cost, increasing accessibility for all learners. Clyde Seepersad, SVP and General Manager, Training & Certification, The Linux Foundation said, “As open source has become dominant in the technology space, The Linux Foundation saw a huge need for more accessible, quality training options to close the skills gap and ensure there is enough talent in the market to meet demand.

He added, “Our partnership with edX has enabled us to make high quality training from expert instructors available to millions of people at no cost. The impact of this is immeasurable in terms of supporting and growing the open source community at a macro level, and helping aspiring open source professionals break into the industry at the individual level. We are excited to keep up the momentum, and reach our next two million participants even faster.”

Linux Foundation courses offered on edX can be audited at no cost to the participant, including access to all content. Participants wishing to receive a certificate of completion can do so for a fee. Professional certificate programs are also available.
