Many topics, from only 2 hours a week for 2 weeks. Not really going to stretch anyone's intellect but good to keep the grey matter ticking over.

Certificates are From £39.00 but they are optional.

Can I claim a student unidays card with this lol?

I've done a few futurelearn courses - they aren't bad but "attendance" tends to drop off drastically after a couple of weeks. There's not much in the way of interaction but its a good way to get a start on a subject if you are interested.

Nope.

I'm always dubious about the certificates these providers offer.

These courses all seem a bit light, still not seen any providers that beat coursera
coursera.org/

The certifications are more for your benefit than theirs. It's not a qualification but some people like to have evidence of completion (e.g. for employers/CVs)

They're only short course's but still a good way of increasing your knowledge. I've signed up for one. Good find.

​Shaw Academy?

​Shaw Academy?


I did one shaw academy course on web development, it was interesting that it was live, but that meant the pace was too slow and you couldn't rewind to go over bits again. Also a large portion of the time the lecturer had to tell people to stop spamming the question window!

I have a diploma in photography with Shaw Academy and didn't have to take a single photo........... their certificates are apparently accredited by some organisation or another but i don't see how you can do an online course for practical things memorizing answers to questions doe not make you a photographer.........

You don't have to take photos to get the certificate, but if you really want to learn, you do that anyway to try out what they tell you in the lectures...
