I have to say that are are many courses I loved, but the one that actually changed the course of my working life was the TESOL course offered by Arizona State University; first because it made it possible to change jobs and second because it's an actual certficiate from the University.
Course name: TESOL certificate (Teach English now, part 1 and 2)
Offered by: Arizona State University
How long it took to complete: About a year with financial aid, it takes a long time between courses because you can only apply for one corse at a time.
Favorite lecture/reading/activity: All of it basically
Key learnings: Teaching techniques, what to teach, resourses.....
Who would benefit from taking this course: Anyone who wants to teach!
I would love to do a Bachelor of Arts with Coursera (English, Teaching........) if offered.

My absolute favourite course is Learning How to Learn by Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski. It's no coincidence that this course has had more than 2 million enrollments since it was released in 2014. It has short videos packed full of interesting and useful information. Plenty of metaphors are used to explain how the brain works.

Using a Pomodoro to put off procrastination and get things done is helpful in many aspects of life, not just online learning.
