I deem a regular further education into new topics essential. That is why I attended MOOCs (massive open online courses) independently. Here only a list of MOOCs that I completed with a certificate (for example it is policy of the Princeton University on Coursera principally not to award certificates to MOOC participants).

Remark: The only relevant difference between the types of certificate “Honor Code Certificate” vs “Verified Certificate of Achievement” for edX is that for “Verified Certificate of Achievement”, my identity was verified via identity card and the certificate was subject to a charge. Since end of 2015, “Honor Code Certificates” are not awarded anymore at edX.
