Are these any good with them coming from USA universities? I am actually interested in doing some stuff but dont know the ins and outs of them
These courses in my opinion are not designed to be professional qualifications. You will not become a dentist/doctor/lawyer online But in this fast moving world , especially in computing and digital marketing etc a 3 year university degree doesn't cut it. Although it is the best foundation. After that you need to keep ahead of the game.

Motivations should be one or more of :

Enjoyment

Making yourself a more rounded individual. In this respect do something totally off the wall. E.g. Learn japanese or russian

Enhancing your chosen profession

Starting/running a business

There is so much opportunity to educate yourself compared to 20/30 years ago.

As an employer wouldn't you want to take on someone who had pulled themselves up by their bootlaces

I need one on pivot tables as I my knowledge is only limited. Any good sites for this please?
Pivot tables are the devils handiwork. As a 25 year data consultant, stay well away from them, the number of errors due to pivots that I have found. There are far better ways to analyse and present data.
