I wonder if anyone hereabouts has experience to share of software related online postgrad courses.

In about a months time I have to make up mind whether to go for something like this, or back to work full time if I can find a contract.
The idea came about having read a couple of Phd thesis on Aspect Oriented Programming a few months back. I realised that I had already implemented most of the same ideas and surpassed what they were doing in a few places. The thought was if they can get a Phd, albeit from a minor German university, for that then I should be able to aswell. Going back to being a student on a campus somewhere is impractical however appealing so I let the idea pass. Now it seems universities are getting very excitable about online courses and offering many more remote places so maybe it could work after all. I have no idea where to start looking given that searching for online-courses will give me millions of hits, most of them not worth following up. Where would I go for a good experience and a Phd or MSc worth more than the paper it's printed on?
