    Default My First Online Course Certificate

    Just got a certificate for completing Introduction to Systematic Program Design (with distinction) on the Coursera MOOC. Gotta say I'm feeling pretty good about it even though it's just a PDF file that probably doesn't hold much weight. I kinda wish I'd purchased their signature track option which would've gotten me a link with my photo and other stuff that could be sent to a school/employer, but it's all good.

    I have two more courses in the works, and eventually I hope to have enough giving the equivalent of a BS or something which I can use to jumpstart grad school or flesh out a resume. And it's all FREE! This whole MOOC system is really becoming more and more awesome .

    The fox was probably right - they could have been sour grapes.
