Good courses, bad app 1/5
It is rather frustrating to keep getting error message and can’t access the courses when I have time to study. It keeps saying I have network issue and the matter of fact is I can do anything but using coursera app. Please fix this bug!
I’m a mom and I love this 5/5
I love the opportunity to learn from home and taking care of my baby at the same time!
Affordable education! 5/5
You should try it.
It’s not working 2/5
I’m sure it’s working for a lot of people, but the app never works for me. No matter how often I reinstall or check the internet connection - it just NEVER works. Wasted hours on trying to get it to work.
Shittiest App ever 1/5
First Videos don’t download
Now that I’ve updated this shitti piece of junk...
I can’t even access my courses any more!
Freezing on iPhone 7plus 3/5
Great app, but it recently started freezing. Video and audio still play, but all other controls and overlay and notes freeze when starting a video.
Just installed the latest patch on my ipad, app wont open 1/5
This app will not open, it shows the splash screen, then closes. Im on an ipad, with iOS version 11.2.5 installed. Please fix so I can ve truly mobile with this app
Continuous Learning 5/5
Loved the app, had most features of what I could do if I was using it on a desktop. Convenient if you’re on the go and don’t have the time to sit at your computer and finish your courses. However, when I was taking a quiz it shut off and I wasn’t able to open the app at all, even after restarting it and my phone as well.
In a world where there are more mobile devices than desktop computers, this mobile app irks me more often than most mobile experiences.
Often shows me enrolled in no courses, despite the fact I am enrolled in more than one.
Seldom allows me to pick up where I left off.
Controls and layout are often non-intuitive. I have not seen a large variety of courses, so that may be the fault of the individual company or organization that made the specific course. However, I expect Coursera to maintain a standard.
There are instances where input does not function, or malfunctions. Irritating during quizzes.
The app does not warn the user when there is a pending update. The user just encounters more irritating issues and errors, seemingly with no explanation.
Consumer grade, it is not.
Mobile access limited 3/5
The course I am taking is not available on the mobile app only on the web version. Apparently this is due to a systems upgrade and should be resolved. However, I find it unacceptable that we were not told prior to enrollment. It reflects poor attention to customer needs.
SIMPLY AMAZING 5/5
Coursera is simply amazing. They let you audit pretty much every course for free. So you have unlimited access to TONS of video and information from the top universities around the world.
And if you want to go further you can go after an official certificate for not a lot of money or even complete full specialization courses. I LOVE IT! I recommend it to everyone. Coursera is the best learning tool that I know of.
CRAP! Freezes my iPad and can’t download 1/5
Reinstalled several times. Try to download the content for offline and freezes my iPad. Only way to fix is uninstall the app. And tray again. After 6 times, I’m done!
Glad I stumbled onto this 5/5
I love that when you complete courses you can submit them directly to LinkedIn. I love that you can get scholarships! I love that for the most part all of the instructors have funny little quirks! Sky’s the limit, are you ready?!
Recommended App! 5/5
I would say this is the best app that i have in my phone👍🏻👍🏻
Great site 5/5
By Trane ali
Great site to improve your knowledge and career
Great concept; needs discipline 4/5
By Vick (not nick) Name
MOOCS are a great concept to put knowledge which has already been disseminated out where more people can access it.
It requires discipline to return to the subject every day to learn, review and remember. Once you get there it is very simple.
I bypass the certificate and just get the information. That works for me.
By Mony chin
The ability to learn any subject from top universities is something no one could have believed just 10 years ago!
5 Stars! 5/5
This platform is seamless and the course I am taking in Positive Psychology is so fascinating. Good work, Coursera!
The service is great! The app, not so much. 2/5
The app is beautiful and seems like it should be a great experience. Unfortunately, sometimes it just won’t connect to my account, and it doesn’t update to show my latest progress under my next steps. The code execution window gets covered up by the keyboard so I can’t edit or execute it. I prefer to use the web browser.
impossible to log in with email 3/5
I recently re-downloaded this app to my phone and tried to log in with my email like I had done in the past but their is a glitch now and you can only use facebook to log in. Facebook is evil so I’m not using it.
I haven’t had any problems with it at all so far, maybe because it’s very smooth fast and stable.
Login screen bad 1/5
I basically can not login using email on an iPhone 8, the fields are hidden. User testing?
Beyond Awesome 5/5
By Charlie Chalrie
Doesn’t want to open 1/5
By Pavel Budnik
After several videos the app has shut down and since doesn’t want to launch.
Love the app, great for completing courses on the go 5/5
Love the app, it is great for completing courses when you don’t have access to a laptop. The offline videos don’t work very well when there are short quizzes in the middle of the video. It keeps showing the question that you answered last time when your phone was online. You will have to enable cellular phone data if you want to complete courses when you don’t have WiFi access. I hope they fix this in the app.
Great app!!! 5/5
By Master Carlo
I've been waiting for Coursera to release an app, as I like to learn on-the-go. I listen to video lectures on my smartphone as I go about my daily business. They' updated the app to fix a few minor bugs, and now it's smooth sailing. Great app, great education and a great opportunity for everyone. Democracy at its finest.
I’ve been using Coursera for years now, and they keep adding more and more great courses from great schools. It may not give you actual college credit, but it will certainly give you an education!
Login problem 3/5
I am having problem with logging in on my smartphone, I used it computer but can’t sign in on smartphone
Continuing Education: 5/5
Thank you, Coursera, for allowing me to learn ANYTHING at ANYTIME!!!!!!
Great app and courses 5/5
I love couesera. The classes are easy to sign up for and complete. It easy to navigate to review a video or test you already took. You can tell that the universities that made these courses really put out a quality classes. If you just audit the classes you do not have to pay anything. However in some classes, you have to be a paying student to take the tests. The content of the classes are anywhere from high school level to graduate level. If you signed up for a class that you are not ready for yet, you can switch to a later session or unenroll from the class at any time.
Hard to sign in 3/5
I was excited then I tried to sign in and it looked completely broken. Couldn’t see the fields at all to log in with my email and password. Maybe it works better if you are signing in with Facebook.
Horrible update 1/5
By the real puzzle man
Coursera app was well designed
app update is a significant down grade
Thumbs up 5/5
By Thirsty Brain
Amazing opportunity. So grateful it’s free. Unbelievable!!
By Vedder 12
This coincides with a couple of classes in taking, the overlap is great. The professors are awesome. What a great way to learn.
Logs me out all the time! 2/5
By Bman 2027
Got this to use on my commute. Constantly logs me out and requires internet connection to log back in to use already downloaded data!
By priya krishna
I am enjoying learning TESOl from Arizona state university
Easy to use educational resource 5/5
I've used Coursera entirely on my iPad. The app works well, and the systems for verification were easy to use. I found the videos well organized, and the supplemental material was easy to access and helpful for review prior to the quiz. While I was held to a deadline for completing the entire course, it was not difficult to fit pockets of study into a busy week. I hope they continue to add courses.
Great courses 5/5
With this app, learning happens anywhere at any time... hopefully this improves my completion rate. Love the eclectic selection of courses provided at coursera!
Crash - multiple sign in requirement 4/5
New update has a trouble. App requires Sign in every time I open it and all offline data is corrupted.
Great app 5/5
By Mrs. S Knirb
I'm really enjoying the course, it has short informative videos and great content. I'm learning and can apply what I've learned. The sections are connected well together and the course flows tgh with relevant questions after a section just to check if you understood. Am really enjoying it
Need to fix offline mode 2/5
The rating is for the iPhone app, not for Coursera as a whole, which is the best thing in the world. That’s why it needs a perfect app. The thing to fix desperately is the offline mode. Your downloads are useless if you didn’t open a particular course in the app before you went offline. You just cannot get to the contents of your downloads if you’re not logged in and hasn’t (which is only possible when online) opened a course while still online. This needs fixing. Also the progress made offline is not reflected.
App freezes a lot 1/5
Whenever I start watching a video there is about a 50/50 chance that the app will just freeze and have to be force quit. This makes it really hard to make progress on a course.
Coursera is good but their app stinks 5/5
I downloaded some course modules, only to get to my destination to find that I couldn't access them because I wasn't signed on. And not one of the modules I downloaded was there. What's the point? I finally got to a WiFi network, but there was no option to sign on the app. I finally just deleted it.
Maybe their app programers should take one of the iOS programming courses.
Good classes, somewhat buggy app with strange animations 4/5
I really enjoy classes. They give away really quality stuff for free.
However app needs some improvements and additions.
1. Quizzes sometimes have significant issues with layout, especially if options include formulas or just long text. They also don’t handle orientation change well. And after processing answer show exploding animations
2. Video player is a bit out of date. No easy way to fast forward for 10/15 seconds. changing playback speed is iterative, with no option to quickly switch back to slower rate. Please take a look at modern iOS 11 player or at YouTube player. They have all these issues solved.
3. Video’s audio stream bitrate sometimes is so low so it is impossible to understand anything. With bad network you still have to wait to precache to get better quality. So this option of super low bitrate doesn’t give much to end users, except frustration (many forum topics talk about this audio quality, but moderators provide useless suggestions to tune equalizer)
Great app!!! 5/5
Love it love it; it’s pretty simple to use , very resourceful. If you’re thirsty for knowledge outside of school this is what you need!!!
It’s horrible 1/5
IPhone as well as IPad version can’t open a course session.
Coursera Is an AMAZING resource 5/5
By Karla 924
COURSERA provides amazing FREE resources that are almost “too good to be true,” with the difference that it’s not only true, but some of these awesome courses are completely free. It can’t get better!
The app has gotten so much better 5/5
By analytics enthusiast
Auditing courses is straightforward. Content is quality & the breakout of specializations has been done well.
Utter Racism 3/5
By Persian n Proud
Coursera blocks Iran IP and does not isdue certificate.
How come that an educational website promotes Racism?
