There are numerous good websites where you can take courses on your favorite subject for free. There are some websites where you can complete the course and get the certificate by taking the exam for a certain fee. Some sites will offer you free courses as well as more advanced courses for a fee.
Here are some notable websites:
Online Learning: Nowadays, our opportunities to acquire information and knowledge through Google and YouTube have increased day by day. And if the acquisition of this knowledge is subject-based, then it is more enjoyable. There are many “online learning websites” through which we can gain knowledge at home
We have a “Study Website” in Bangladesh called “10 Minute School, Mukto Path & Pentanik IT”. Thousands of students are taking classes online every day here. From today’s article, we will learn about 5 international learning platforms. From where you can get free course-based knowledge.
The popularity or prevalence of online courses in Bangladesh is still not so much, maybe not so much known – those who are older (maybe). So they may not understand by looking at these course certificates that they are obtained by the courses of big foreign professors. However, these certificates will definitely add an extra value to the CV. Everything that has plus points in hand can be given in the CV. But many people think that “short and short CVE” is more effective. Basically, acquiring knowledge should be given more importance than getting a certificate in an online course.
Growth in the e-learning market could be around 94 billion by 2020-2024. Although these courses are well known abroad, they are new to many in our country. Currently there are various online course providers such as: Coursera, EdX, Udemy, 10 minutes school, Muktopath, Pentanik IT, and Audacity. These online course providers are offering both paid and unpaid versions of different courses. Only the course can be audited in the unpaid version. This means that only the contents can be accessed but no certificate is available at the end of the course. To get a certificate for a course in the paid version, the average cost is about 50 dollars or about 4500 rupees. The question is, is there really any benefit with the certificate of these courses with so much money?
Simply put, there is no point in taking a certificate just for show-off. Because even if the certificate of these courses can be added to the CV, higher education or employers will not hire anyone just by looking at the writings in the CV. Having these certificates in your CV will definitely make a positive impression. These certificates will make your personal commitments a little stronger (your dedication).
Suppose you see an offer of an assistantship where the condition for hiring is that the applicant must know the work of MS Excel, SPSS, and GIS software. If you are not offered these courses from varsity in undergrad, then a great opportunity to get a certificate for such an online course. When approaching a professor for RA, the professor must ask about that software skill in a Skype interview. Then these certificates will definitely help in proving one’s skill. But if you just try to get these certificates with conviction to convince the professor, it will be a big mistake. Because in this interview no explanation can be found. The professor must ask about the details of the software.
The rate of taking online courses has increased since the Corona epidemic hit the world. This is because various giant course sites have made their courses free for all interested students around the world. In that opportunity, many people can learn about their favorite subject for free through the course. Even getting a certificate at the end of the course.
