Online courses become effective for building technical skills, earning certifications - Ross Rubin, CIO

Lower cost, course variety, schedule flexibility and the optional endorsement of top universities are among the forces driving the wave of online technical education. However, spotty feedback from teachers and follow-through from students can compromise the experience. Online providers of technical education courses include Udemy, a marketplace in which virtually anyone can offer instruction, and sites such as Coursera, edX and Udacity that partner with universities. New York-based General Assembly, which focuses on technical skills development, offers online companion courses to physical class offerings that can span a weekend or go on for months in one of its immersive programs. It has served more than 350,000 students http://www.cio.com/article/3192199/it-industry/online-courses-become-effective-for-building-technical-skills-earning-certifications.html
