    Would it be helpful to include any relevant Udemy certificates on my cv or are these seen as low quality credentials?
    AD Udemy logo Learn on demand. Explore thousands of courses starting at £9.99 each.
  2. UDEMY is for hoppiests. There is no academic value at all .Anybody can set up a video and read some books can claim that he is providing and online course . I took 2-3 couırses from them . One photography course . Instructor just read a book . Also Udemy itself says anybody can submit a course and ask some fee for it . People unfortunately do not understand what it is. And they pay .
    I am an employer . If somebody comes to me saying that he has a certificate from UDEMY, I would not even talk to him . For good academic courses go to EDX get courses from Harvard Stanford, MIT , Duke , Princeton , then I can hire you at the 80 % of the salary I would pay to Harvard graduate . Seriously. Even Coursera is not very serious online . It is a commercial company. So they are not selective in their universities as members .
  3. I think the certificates are very important. The Udemy's model is fresh and attractive for many people. Now, the certificates in microlearning way, or MOOC of the universities and organizations, are very successful.
  4. This is a judgment call. Increasingly, the answer is a definitive yes. However, as illustrated by your first answer there are some stubborn, lingering (ignorant, IMHO) impressions that all online learning is somehow cheap and easy, infinitely inferior to bricks-, especially Ivy bricks-, based courses.

    As a default, I would certainly include them. But if you are applying to a law firm or a classic consulting firm or investment bank - where everything is judged by GPA and standing of University, I'd omit them on the CV and bring them up in the interview in the context of your ongoing learning path.

    Coursera is not serious? LOL! You might have picked the wrong course then?
    First of all, they are all commercial companies who have ties with Universities. Some with Harvard and others with London U and others. Virtual Reality Specialization for instance have world known Academics who are teaching the course. So, stating Coursera isn't serious online, please do your homework before making such claims.

    Did you study English at Udemy per chance?
