I completed more than 60 moocs along many topic, in particular IT security, business and general software programming. 

Many of them are obtaneid through Coursera and Cybrary. I chose to follow them because I can manage my spare time and keep the pace with my current studies, and because I can't spend much in this moment.

I'm wondering if Moocs count something in a resume. I know they are not comparable with certifications, but I think they can prove a candidate's will of continuos learning. 

 

What do you think about it?

No, because I don't have any.  I had to look up what Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are.  How I would handle it, would be to add the information in a keyword section of your resume.

 

It have a section titled Technical Proficiencies, broken down into three sections: Platforms, Tools, and Hardware.  In those section I have software and hardware I have supported.

 

That said do not list anything on your resume that you are not capable of discussing.  In other words don't say that you know something that you're not comfortable with supporting.  I've dropped things off of my resume that I haven't supported for over five years as while I used to know it well, I'd have to relearn it now.

Thanks Kirloy, I should have mentioned what moocs are. Yes, indeed we must be ready to discuss about anything written on the resume. I hope to find any voucher for certification
