Minh, it really depends on your goals. Do you want to do it for the learning experience or do you want to get a degree?


I've taken a lot of online courses from top universities just for the learning experience.

Romnik, they might be awful indeed, but it  sounds a bit like  "for pure math XXX is awful. They just can't compete with thinking and solving problems".

I think they are perhaps good for some subjects, since they provide material at a certain level. For language learning in particular, I would say they are awful. They just can't compete with what the rest of the internet has to offer for a learner (Novels, TV, films, podcasts, native speakers, penpals etc)
