Default Online Astrodynamics Course Sought

Hi all. I'm a professional software engineer working at a well-known NASA center. I have an undergraduate degree in physics.
I am looking to delve deeper into the subject of spacecraft flight dynamics: orbit determination, maneuver planning, and trajectory design. I seem to work best in a traditional college course environment, lectures, reading, problems, quizzes, exams, labs, etc. Going anywhere is out of the question due to my workload and lifestyle. I'm looking for something online.
I have found this MIT OpenCourseware offering, but I'm not as enthusiastic because it is an archive and there would be no "grade" given. Otherwise, I'm open to formal or MOOC.
Finally, I'd like to cross-post this to a popular forum or listserv to broaden my results, so if anyone can recommend some.
---supplemental---
I found these additional gems at Coursera and EdX:
Kinematics: Describing the Motions of Spacecraft
Kinetics: Studying Spacecraft Motion
Space Mission Design and Operations
---attitude (tangentially related)---
Control of Nonlinear Spacecraft Attitude Motion

Well, I don't know for the US but in Belgium we have something that's called Space studies and it's a master you can complete in one year time where they focus on orbital mechanics etc. You could check it out for the US and see if they don't offer online courses. Good luck!
