What is the verdict on Online Learning Courses and accreditation?

I am studying in university, but I have often taken supplementary online courses on sites like Udemy and FutureLearn. How do recruiters look at these certifications - are they impressed or are they just overlooked?

your additional degrees definitely give a good impression on the employer. Moreover, it matters what you have learnt in those courses which can be demonstrated. These courses can help understand the industry better and can equip you to position better vs competition.

Great question and I hope my answer will be adequate for you.

In my field (Information Technology), you can never have enough certifications. No matter if it is through Udemy or what. As long as they are relevant to your course of study or job field, they are invaluable and set you above your peers.

In addition to your other answers, Certifications of Completion can attest to “what you're doing on your spare time” or time gaps in your resume.
Also, it shows the employer that you’re resourceful and you know how to study.
I’ve sat on hiring boards for IT, on occasions these training opportunities were weighed heavy on.
