Certainly! For most MITx Online courses, enrollment remains open even after the course has started. This is particularly true for self-paced courses where you have the flexibility to learn at your own pace. In self-paced courses, you can enroll at any time during the course duration and access the course materials, assignments, and exams from the beginning.
However, it's important to note that some courses follow an instructor-paced model, which means they have specific assignment and exam deadlines. While you can still enroll in instructor-paced courses after they have started, joining late might limit your ability to submit past-due assignments or take past-due exams. In such cases, learners may choose to enroll late primarily to familiarize themselves with the course content and learning materials.
To make an informed decision, it's recommended to review the course details and syllabus to understand the specific pacing and deadlines associated with the course you're interested in. This way, you can determine if joining the course after it has started aligns with your learning goals and expectations.
