Online courses and certificate programs are established and respected as a valid career qualifications more than ever. In the last decade, the market for online certificates has grown exponentially. What started with simple tutorials on YouTube one and a half-decade ago has turned into a multi-billion dollar e-Learning business market over the last 10-15 years. You can apply for a corporate 9 to 5 job or for a freelance contract with a  certificate from a reputable e-learning platform that is in most cases valued as much as a school or university degree.

The Power of Online Certificates

Online certificates are ideal for showcasing your professional skills to a potential employer or client. Even Harvard University has been collaborating with the online learning platform edX for over a decade now; heck, you can even prove your English skills for your application at Harvard with a Duolingo online English certificate!

You can learn with online courses about a wide variety of subjects, from quantum physics to cooking online, and in most cases, you will receive a valid certificate afterward. Every person, company, or institution can create online classes and publish them.

The worldwide pandemic has pushed the trend to online learning in the comfort of the home, and the application numbers for online courses have skyrocketed. The face-to-face teaching mentality is shifting more and more to online teaching. The pandemic has given many of us the opportunity and time to develop our capabilities and skills in the comfort of our homes.

The online learning market segment has been predicted to be worth $243 billion in 2022, according to data from Statista.

Online courses and certifications are not an irrelevant fad; they have been an indispensable pillar in our educational system for more than 15 years. Their significance for the workforce and personal development is growing more relevant each year.

There is so much to discover and to learn, and what makes it more pleasing than doing it in the comfort of your own home while sipping tea, at your own pace and on your schedule?

One of the most valuable things you can do with your time is to learn and discover new skills and techniques and grow your knowledge and capabilities as a human being.
