What is everyone's opinion on MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), those free online courses that anyone can sign up for. Some offer certificates, do you think they are worth doing to put on a resume? Do they hold any value? Do you think they could be taken into consideration when applying for school or a job? This is my opinion: I think they could hold some value if the course was something like intro to programming with python or something in that ball park. It just shows you hold a simple skill, I guess you could always learn it on your own and just list it as skills on your resume though. A lot of schools are doing online classes but without the actual diploma to back it up I don't see things like MOOCs doing much for someone regarding school and jobs.
