What are the best free online computer courses?

Is it possible to undertake a computer course free of charge over the internet? Are the free online computer courses as good as the computer courses taught in ordinary computer colleges? Will I get a certificate of merit once I finish studying? Will there be a one on one relationship between the online tutor and me or will I be dealing with a robot? Can I indicate in an application letter that I underwent a computer training course through an online training center? How long do online distance learning courses take? Do the online training centers offer all the computer packages or it is just a selected few?

There is no excuse why someone would be staying at home claiming he does not have money to go to college. Everything about computers is being taught over the internet free of charge and some of these free online computer courses are commercial in nature. You learn how to program a computer free of charge and you get to do that job for somebody and charge good money. It is very possible to have a source of livelihood through these online distance learning courses if you use the knowledge acquired well. I am a product of this course; I trained and started off at my college to program the laptops of my classmates for free at the beginning. Once I gained enough experience I went commercial and now I charge good money. It is possible to learn and understand well through an online course.
