I think many here are mistaken a course for a certificate. There are usually 6 or 7 courses needed to get a certificate. So it may take two weeks for a course but it will take 3 to 4 months for a certificate. So if you look at it its almost the same as taking a full univeristy course in a subject which takes usually 3 to 4 months. It only looks easy because usually there are no other courses to take with it as the case with university where you are taking four full courses in the same period. Its a specialization certificate and it works best if you take two certificates in a related field from ecornell. posted Mar 25th, 2014 9:52 am

eCornell is going down the tubes with its new model. I think they are just trying to make a lot of money and rip us off. They how have college students with no experience grading our course work. No thank you. posted Oct 14th, 2013 11:46 pm

The "certificate" looked like my ten year old made it on her computer.



The content should be more lengthy.



The assessments should be more lengthy.



The cost is over priced for what you get.



However, if you are looking to get a certificate, without much work at all, and without learning much, and have lots of money/credit., then you would love this mickey mouse course. You could complete a two week course in less than 15 minutes. What a joke!!!!



I thought that eCornell would've offered a prestigous looking certificate, and a decent online learning experience. Boy was I mistaken.

I had much better success with The American Hotel and Lodging Association, online courses. ( AHLA ) posted Nov 18th, 2010 9:48 pm
