    also kids in the poor world could benefit from these free uni courses that are being provided from high class uni's like this and MIT...

    i don't think they do but it would look good on your résumé. And also it might help if you want a change of career but want to see if you like it first. I'm doing the nursing one because I want to do nursing at uni

    I've completed two Vision2Learn courses which are proper certified courses. They're only Level 2, but still better than nowt! I've done the IT Level 2, and Equality and Diversity. You get enrolled with a proper 'local' college, and get proper nationally recognised certificates. I got CLAIT something-or-other for the IT course. There should be a few posts on here about it somewhere.

    How did you find the business admin course? Having completed the other 2, this one was a bit of a shock to the system with regard to the length of the first assessment (which I'm half way through, and overdue!), and apparently there are 5 of them?! Not complaining, but finding it quite heavy going! The only remaining one is the Customer Service one, and if I'm honest I think that it might perhaps 'dumb down' my CV rather than enhancing it, although I don't have any plans to dust the CV down anytime soon. Not sure whether to do it or not!

    Have you tried the ALISON courses? They have certificates too, and some of them are only a few hours long. Not looked into it fully as I've been busy doing these others on my nightshifts, but will possibly look into that next.
