I’ve taken two courses from Coursera, I’ve found them to be really engaging and somewhat useful (Intro to Finance & Intro to Marketing).

 

My only gripe with Coursera is that they offer a great deal of “elective” type courses, like Ancient Greek Civilization or Early English Poetry.

 

But, if you can find classes with that carry practical value and/or personal interest I would say go for it, the time invested in the classes won’t be wasted.

Anyone still picking up courses for fun / self-development?

Anyone try the paid, "certified" versions?

Just signed up for a few courses more specific to the work I'm doing right now starting late September. Will see how it goes--4 management type courses.

I'm halfway through the Johns Hopkins data science specialization on Coursera.

I started following a free MIT course on microeconomics a while back. The problem IME is that after a few lectures, it's tough to keep up/stay interested unless you actually buy the book and do homework like the real students in the class.
