In these sites, you can still learn for free, but you have to pay for certificates

edX - There is an option to get financial-aid for paid certificates.

Udacity

The great Indian NPTEL. There is something called Nptel Online Certification (NOC) in which you would be required to pay a specific amount and an exam will be conducted, in which you'll have to secure a passing grade to get the certificate.

Futurelearn - (They had a limited issuance of free certificates for certain courses)

Also if you like electronics and stuff, do checkout the IEEE Webinars.

Khan Academy too has a lot of good educational stuffs.

I found a further list of sites, but am unsure whether they offer certificates

Institute of Art and Ideas - Arts and Philosophical courses

Cognitive Class - Bigdata, Machine Learning related courses

p.s Certificates are just a matter of words that describes your involvement in the specific course. In the end, what matters is, how well the grey matter that you did pump into your brain by learning from these courses.

Coursera.

You can have a try by this online resources.

But keep in mind that insistance is the most important.

There are free MOOCs, but for certification you need to pay.

Knowledge is free.

If certifications were free, why would you go to a college/school/university and pay fees.
