No it doesn’t give academic credit or count as an EC as it should be an Award/Honor. These courses on Coursera EdX Udemy etc gives you the knowledge how to do something but you haven’t done anything with said knowledge such as start a club pass an official qualifying test etc.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
