  1. Learning may be free but certification is never not free!!! Have tried Cousera,edX and Alison they are not free at all.

    • In addition to providing free access to courses from some of the world’s leading universities, Coursera also offers Financial Aid and Scholarships to those unable to pay for certificates (if they wish to obtain a certificate). Did you apply for Financial Aid or a Scholarship?

  2. ALLISON… Do the couses offered come with certification at the end of the Course? if yes how do the certificates reach the graduate?

    respond soonest…

  3. Do you have any collages that offer Degree programmes in hotel management and general hospitality? iam interested in these courses
