Several Aerospace Engineering courses, organised by NPTEL India (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) are available during the second semester 2020. The courses adress mainly to Indian students, who are living far from Universities. According to my experience, most of the courses consist in video recordings where the professors are explaining concepts and facts, and you have to take notes by your own. Online training quizzes and assignments are available, but to get a certificate one has to pass a final exam in one of the Indian exam centres. Below the course list :

Interesting and well structured Mooc about Technical maintenance of commercial airlines. It adresses to further students in aeronautical engineering and gives an idea of technical skills and responsibilities to manage. Video lectures (followed by transcriptions) and external videos are about aviation engineering services, brief descriptions of aircraft components and structures, and types of aircraft maintenance services. You also learn facts about the state of the Russian civil aviation industry, and what kind of education options, qualifications and job-training Samara State Aerospace University offers.
After each lesson, you can achieve a multiple choice question test. There is no limit in attempts, but proposed answers are changing in order and content. Quizzes have been reviewed and contain also some cloze tests. My personal score was 94%.
You can comment the lessons, and reply to student’s discussion.
A very good introduction to aviation engineering and maintenance skills for future students.
