Are online courses worth the time?

I'm going to be doing Bsc Biomedical Science in the fall as a freshman. It's a pretty vast field and it's not known to be very prospective right after an undergrad degree. I am planning to do a post-grad degree but I heard online courses in important fields like business and computer science would give me a little edge, job-wise. Is that true? Will they be considered as serious courses (considering I pay for the certificates of course)?

Do employers see value in a Coursera/edX/MOOCs certificates?

I want to continue my studies to build my career and have relevant skills in my field, but it is hard to do in-class courses with a full-time job. This made me strongly consider taking online courses. I definitely think that further education is great for personal growth and learning new concepts and skills. Though I was wondering if employers actually see value in online courses and certifications, such as those on Cousera, edX, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Does it mean anything when they see it on a resume? #career #resume #job-application #career-building #education #certifications #online-courses
