Is it possible to take free online computer courses?

I’ve been interested in information technology since I was a child. I’ve read all the articles that I’ve found about it and I’m subscribed to several magazines about it. I want to take free online computer courses to learn more in a more organized way. I know that there are IT online courses with certifications from important IT online colleges and I’m sure they’re great, but they’re very expensive and I’m finishing high school and have only a small job. That’s why I need free online computer courses with certificate.

It’s very practical to take online courses to learn about IT instead of going to a campus because you can study directly in your workplace or at home, which is often your workplace too. I took many IT online courses that I found on different sites and they were from different institutions. I was always very satisfied with those courses. I learned something new each time and they helped me practice what I had already learned. I got some certifications but honestly, I wasn’t looking for them at first. I didn’t want to collect credits or diplomas. At the beginning, all I wanted was to learn about information technology. And all I can say is those courses helped me a lot. Of course, you need to organize your time and commit to each course if you really want to learn, as you do on campus. Otherwise, this system doesn’t work.
