How do I benefit by studying online and are there online courses with certificates?

I am contemplating joining an online course since I hardly find time for anything else other than my job.  Where do I find online courses with certificates and what are the costs or requirements that I need to fulfil? I hear there are many benefits to studying online; what are some of the benefits of online learning? If there are any distance learning universities offering online courses, kindly enlighten me. Am checking the internet but am confused between purely online websites and universities offering distant learning courses.

Open university is a public university where distant learning university courses are offered as well as the carrying out of research. Studying for a certificate at the Open University gives the learner the opportunity to get educated at the university level while ridding themselves the commitment that comes with a degree or diploma course. Certificates at Open University are focused on specific studies, professions or jobs. They offer certs for higher learning in health sciences, natural & social sciences, teaching and computing. Under Open University’s system of credit, the units earned during a study period can be made use of in different studies in the institution.

I will complement your good response by addressing the advantages of online learning. To start with, online learning offers a variety of courses and programs than the traditional 4-year university education; there are a variety of options for students. With online learning, there is lower total cost -the programs are by far affordable than traditional institutions. There’s usually no textbooks required since most material is provided online. Secondly there are no costs for commuting since one studies from home. While normal students will have to struggle with traffic, leaving work early and finding parking spaces, the online student can participate in a class when in pyjamas. One doesn’t need to miss important family time so as to go to class. One doesn’t have to go to the library; a lot of material is available online. Lastly one studies at their most convenient time since one can plan their day as it suits them best.
