So the doors are open at MITx and we can see the business model on the wall - for this pilot version certification will be free, but we all know that this won't last. "According to the course website, the class will demand approximately 10 hours a week from those enrolled. There will be video lectures and demonstrations, homework exercises and an "online interactive lab specifically designed to replicate its real-world counterpart." All of the assignments and exams will be graded by "robots," or rather artificial intelligence software."
