    Hello, am inquiring about something related to completion of the course. Should i expect a certificate or any docutement i can present anywhere to show i did something from this platform??

      Hi, I am familiar with Coursera and EdX, two of the most mentioned learning platforms from the above list.

      These two platforms both offer the option to either: 1) freely audit the class, learn, but receive no certification; or 2) pay an administrative cost and also receive a certification.
