MASSIVEU Terms of Service
Lessons, Courses and Certifications
The Sites will, from time to time, offer lessons or courses in a specific area of study or on a particular topic (a "Lesson" or "Course"). MassiveU and the instructors of the Lessons and Courses reserve the right to cancel, interrupt or reschedule any Lessons and Courses or modify its content as well as the point value or weight of any assignment, exam or other evaluation of progress. Lessons and Courses offered are subject to the Disclaimer of Warranties / Limitation of Liabilities section below.
For some courses, subject to your satisfactory performance in the Lessons and Courses as determined in the sole discretion of the instructors and the Participating Institutions, you may be awarded a statement acknowledging your completion of the class ("Letter of Completion"). This Letter of Completion, if provided to you, would be from MassiveU and/or from the instructors. You acknowledge that the Letter of Completion, if provided to you, may not be affiliated with MassiveU or any college or university. Further, MassiveU offers the right to offer or not offer any such Letter of Completion for a class. You acknowledge that the Letter of Completion, and MassiveU’s Lessons and Courses, will not stand in the place of a course taken at an accredited institution, and do not convey academic credit. You acknowledge that neither the instructors of any Lessons and Courses nor the associated Participating Institutions will be involved in any attempts to get the course recognized by any educational or accredited institution. The format of the Letter of Completion will be determined at the discretion of MassiveU and the instructors, and may vary by lesson or course in terms of formatting, e.g., whether or not it reports your detailed scores or grades in the class, and in other ways.
