These online classes are often pre-recorded and allow users to take tests multiple times without programs designed to prevent cheating like typical online university classes. This means at the moment, the certificates that some courses offer at the end are still not worth much credibility from prospective employers and the public at large. These online courses, the infants of higher education, still have a lot of growing up to do: both in terms of structure and credibility. But for now, these websites are tools that the public at large should capitalize on not for the degree, but learning for the sake of learning.
