Do online courses as coursera and others offered by universities to be taken online good on cv or they became useless as many people take them? And some people just take them for lisence renewal?

For courses that are not part of a degree program, you should only list them if they provide a relevant certification (like what GermanStudent said). Many schools also offer online / distance-education versions of their regular courses which count for credit towards a degree program -- i.e. one might take 4 courses on campus and 1 course distance-ed/online. In this case, there's no point listing the individual course on your CV.
