Things to know before paying for online courses

How good are you with making decisions? I admit I sometimes have trouble even with the most basic things. For example, when I’m at the ice cream shop, I can never make up my mind of what I want. Raspberry is so pleasantly sour, and marshmallows so sweet and puffy, and then the chocolate chip cookie dough, and oh, that butterscotch… It’s a really long way to cones and toppings.

Ok, I’ll admit that not all life decisions are this complex, especially when you don’t have so many choices as in the ice cream shop. But this is felt when I opened a virtual library of online courses. So many authors, universities, prizes, recommendations… How can one make the right choice?

What if you don’t like the “taste”? Or it “melts” away before time? Enrolling and paying for an online course is a little bit more challenging than deciding which snow cone to choose. And just like ice cream, you can’t return it if you don’t like the flavor, nor after eating half of it.
