Genealogy Courses from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies

Last night I stumbled across a site called the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. This is a program offered through the University of Toronto, which is said to be Canada's largest University and seems to have a decent reputation as a research institution.

The Institute confers certificates in genealogical studies. These certificates can be country specific or general. The courses are taken online or by correspondence. And they do cost a precious penny or two.

The course offerings look interesting to me. But has anyone taking any of these courses? If so, what did you think of the content and the format? And beyond having something to hang on the wall what's the significance of having a certificate in genealogical studies? Check this out and please let me know what you think.
