What are the Benefits of Online Learning?
Online courses such as Alison's are gaining popularity because of the benefits they offer students.
1. Relevant and up-to-date content.
Alison's courses offer workplace and life skills training. This is a free opportunity to learn new or sharpen existing skills. Employers value work-readiness in recruits and employees who invest in keeping their skills relevant and up to date. This is why short, skills-based courses are more relevant today (in a fast-changing digital world) than a three-year academic degree.
2. Study anything, anywhere, any time.
Alison courses are self-paced, and with the Alison App, you can access Diploma or Certificate courses from anywhere in the world. Our platform offers over 3000 online courses on almost any subject imaginable, giving you a chance to diversify your knowledge and take several courses on a specific topic to develop expert skills.
3. Free courses, paid certification.
All learning on Alison is free. Your Learner Record, or study transcript, is free to download and can be used as proof of the courses you've completed. You do not have to pay for learning on Alison, but if you wish to purchase a Digital or Printed Certificate or Diploma, you have the option to do so.
When you purchase your certificate or diploma to boost your CV, this could give you the edge over other candidates when recruiters need to decide who makes the short-list interview or not. Make it easy for employers to pick you by standing out from the rest.
Do Online Certifications Count?
Alison’s online certification confirms that you have completed an Alison course. Our Certificates and Diplomas look great on CVs and LinkedIn profiles and proves that you are an eager, resourceful and willing-to-learn self-starter.
