The Best Open Online Courses – Coursera, Udacity, edX Review

A Friendly Review of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). I compare and contrast Coursera vs Udacity vs edX. I take a look at the number of courses they offer, whether it is worth it to pay for the certificates, and the unique specializations / nano degrees / micro masters that each of them offers. To create this review I combined my own experiences as well as those of some of my friends / acquaintances.

Coursera –

Udacity –

edX –

Udemy –

good job , at the moment i am learning ethical hacking and penetration testing at udemy, cource price is 200$ but here are discounts like once in every month and you can buy these cources for 10-15$ and get certificate, so idk why should you pay 100$ or 200$ to learn same things on other websites and get sertificate,

Nolife2692 says:

Hey bro awesome review I think those site is great for me such as EDX website because as a student in high school I always want to learned more and seem like a real high in school to go. As for my mom and I we do not have lots of money. If I am not going for like being a doctor or teacher having a degree is not good where tuition is high. For other degree plan such as business where I am able to learned that self pace and with all the online tools available for free or really cheap option. Right now I am taking College alegbra and it not easy at EDX site. Thanks for the information again

I am learning from udemy it doesn’t provide you any certification course but if you are a self learner who wants to upgrade your knowledge there are plenty of offerings from udemy.
