Which are the best online certificate programs in computer science available?

I am working as a medical representative. Though I am very comfortable with my current profession, I want to do some online courses in a way that does not affect my work, preferably in computer applications. Is there anyone who has done online courses with certificates to help me find top online courses? One of my friends has told me that Harvard online certificates are an excellent option for me. Is Harvard online certificate program suitable for a working person like me with limited time? Which are the best online certificate programs out there?

Your desire to learn is admirable. If you are planning to do computer applications, your selection of online certificate from Harvard is the right selection because they offer some of the best online certificate programs in computer science.

To find online certificate courses from Harvard, the best place for you to start your search is edX, an online learning destination founded by Harvard University and MIT in 2012. The platform offers high-quality courses from Harvard and a number of other internationally renowned institutions, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Berkeley, Georgetown University, and a large number of other institutions from across the globe. There you can find courses on almost all subjects, ranging from computer science, languages, engineering, psychology, writing, electronics, biology, and marketing. Follow the link to know more about edX programs and schedule.

However, Harvard is not the only source for you, there are many other top online schools offering various certificate programs. The Post University has online certificate programs in finance, forensic accounting, a graduate certificate in corporate innovation, a graduate certificate in alcohol and drug counseling, a graduate certificate in entrepreneurship, a graduate certificate in finance, a graduate certificate in leadership, and certificates in many other subject areas. Similarly, you can find great online courses from Liberty University, Walden University, American Intercontinental University, Aspen University, Capella University, Colorado State University, and Kaplan University. You will be able to find a large number of courses to select from and you can select the online certificate program that best meets your needs easily.

The benefits of taking online certificate programs are plenty. For example, you can use the credits from these courses if you pursue further studies in the subject area. However, the main advantage of these online certificate programs over other on-campus courses is that they are much cheaper than the latter. In addition, this study is not going to hurt your work life if you are already employed. Most of these courses have pre-recorded lessons which are easy to comprehend. Whenever you feel comfortable, you can access the lessons and study at a place and time you like. If you are a fast learner, you are going to save much time as well but beware, if you are not self-motivated, there is a chance that you will lose interest and lose momentum as time passes. Thus, a few of the online learners fail to complete their lessons even when the course duration expires.

Hi, welcome to the world of online learning. I have happy news to share with you; a few popular online courses from edX are totally free. Last year, I did a free course on edX. It was Microsoft Office Fundamentals. Its duration was 6 weeks and the effort required was nearly 4-6 hours a week. The course from Microsoft was totally free of cost and allowed the freedom to study at my own pace. The course covered basic skills of Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. After the completion of this free course you have the chance to get a verified certificate by paying $99.

You have a golden chance to enroll in this course by visiting the link fundamentals-outlook- microsoft-cld261x. From my experience as an online learner, this and all other courses available on edX are scientifically developed to raise your job prospects but make sure that you meet the prerequisites before you
enroll in the course.
