Why MOOCs Can Add More Value To A Student's Profile Than You Think - Forbes

Many students want to know how to utilize MOOCs to improve their profile and this brings us to the question of how value is being defined. Are you looking for a breadth of knowledge, a deeper understanding of a particular subject, or perhaps your focus is career advancement? If you have barriers in your way to traditional courses (through accessibility, financial hurdles, lack of public schools in your country, or the need to recreate yourself) I think people will look at your certificates in a different light. One of my fellow MOOC instructors has shared with me stories of students who have left their countries behind and used online courses as a way to quickly provide proof of competency, as well as create a new network of potential colleagues. http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2016/12/23/why-moocs-can-add-more-value-to-a-students-profile-than-you-think/#6b3ef89f445c
