Wonderful app with great stuff to change your life and career for better
Decent app, but offline doesn’t sync 3/5
The app works pretty well, but I got it so I could download my coursework and do it while I have no connection such as on a plane. I can watch lectures, but no lecture questions are presented when offline and I get no credit for having watched the lecture at the end. So I much open each video again once online and click through them to get credit for watching them.
Great learning opportunities 5/5
I've really enjoyed the chance to learn more about a variety of topics from representatives of some top notch institutions. I can explore subjects and decide whether I want to learn more. They offer the option to either audit a class or earn a certificate from the university providing the class. The cost is very reasonable if you do need the document, and courses can be used for continued education or other reasons.
Deceptive about cost 1/5
You have to give them your information and only later do you find out how much it costs.
Wrong language 1/5
By Marcel Tabuteau
This app downloaded onto my phone in Russian. I don't speak Russian, and I can't find how to change the language setting. Google searches and the online help pages aren't providing a solution either.
great app 5/5
easy to use
Lots of resource
Significant Steps Backward 1/5
Don’t upgrade if you haven’t. Absolutely atrocious, and quite frankly the developers should be ashamed of the poor quality.
The redesign of the app made things a lot more difficult. It’s not intuitive where I’m supposed to touch to access my active courses. It no longer gives me the correct option of where I left off on the start of the page and I have to manually check and select which one I was on, it starts me off at Week 1 instead of the active week, and the bar for the videos is no longer active. Also, it shows that I haven’t completed an assignment, even though I checked the website and shows I have. And if it goes to the lock screen on the iPad Pro, it forgets entirely where it was in the application.
Needs work 4/5
By Grace Wander
This app worked great for one whole class then 3 weeks into the next class I can’t get into my home page at all but only on the iPad. So far can get in on the iPhone. Weird.
So far so good 4/5
I think the process is grand. Positivity is a plus for my brain.
what did you guys do? 🤬 1/5
the update ruined my all-time favorite app. it’s a brick. can’t even submit a ticket from the app for pete’s sake.
App not working 1/5
I uploaded the most recent version of this app, and now I cannot access my courses at all unless I go online and use their website. The only thing I can do using the app is look at a selection of classes, ask for a recommendation, and look at my profile. I can’t even find a place to email them about the problem. I am using an iPad mini with the most recent Apple iOS update. hopefully they will fix this soon, as I do most of my studying off line.
Can’t login! 1/5
It’s no good if I can’t get the login page to load 😡
Repeatedly Crashing 3/5
Seemed to be working after IPad Hard reset. Noticed the app was using an extremely large portion of storage, before deleting it and doing the hard reset, on the order of 65GB, after using the app for about 2 HRs, it again started crashing, checked and saw that the data storage had again climbed to about 65GB, this was without saving any videos or data. This cycle seems to repeat after deleting it and hard resetting my iPad. This is on an iPad Pro 12.9 with 256GB v11.3.1 and only 75GB used, until this app adds another 65GB to it.
Charge you after you complete and cancel your subscription 1/5
Check the consumer services reports before you buy. I was happy until they continued to bill me after I have gone into iTunes and cancelled my subscription. They send you emails with links won’t give refunds even if it is less than 10 minutes.
Night mode 5/5
Can you provide us night mode option? It will be helpful.
Learning made practical 5/5
By Slaying the dragon of lethargy
In this day and age of globalization and hands on learning, I’m so glad to be fully immersed in meeting the needs of my work while having the opportunity to learn from the very best in the field without having to leave my site!
Muy buena app me encanta hacer algo productivo y que mas que aprender con cursos de universidad
Can't watch videos of class I'm taking 1/5
The best 5/5
I have learn sooooo much with coursera! I think is the best learning app! You should try it tooo! You will love everything about it and the best part is that it is free!
Awesome online instruction! 5/5
Great course. Learning & Enjoying Machine Learning Course throughly. Professor is awesome....
App doesn’t work 2/5
Lately, I can not load my courses nor can I download my lessons. And every time I sign into the website, it always says it is down for maintenance.
Very good app, very few complaints 3/5
Edit: Removed a star because after the latest update the forums don't load.
Suggestions for improvements: if optional assignments in courses could be differentiated so that the "pick up where you left off" section could skip over those if you've already started/completed assignments after those, it would save a lot of time and actually make that a useful feature. Also, instead of randomly arranging the list of enrolled courses every time the app is opened, it would be nice to have them arranged by last accessed, next assignment due, etc. to save time and make the app a little more user-friendly. Classes also tend to “jump around” while you’re on the page so that, in the time it takes to tap on a course, another one swaps places with it and you’re taken to the wrong page—very frustrating when it happens so often. The app also sometimes feels a little clunky overall and loads a little slowly.
Trying to go through the material, but experiencing a glitchy ui. Result is having to close out of the app and reopen it. This happens when watching instructional videos.
中国ios看不了视频！using ios in china I can not open video! 1/5
In China I can't open those videos using iphone!!!! I want to study!PLEASE GIVE ME THE CONNECTIONS!
Easy to use app-convenient way to continually learn 5/5
This is a great app and works very well on my smartphone too. This is a very easy app to use, it tells me the number of hours anticipated to complete each segment. It automatically flows from one session to the next.
Coursera is a great convenient way to continually learn and even receive certifications.
Must attend 5/5
This course is amazing, Professor Leigh is inspiring and outperform any expectation. Staff is also very responsive and the coursera platform works beautifully.
Points of interest 5/5
By kid spectrum
My guitar teacher introduced me to Coursera courses online
I sought knowledge of music theory and application
It has an elusive prize playing an instrument well enough to perform in public
Left to the novice this may take a prolonged measure of time
But to arrive at this online course and have received an abundance of required information to slingshot my skills to a storm
Excellent conversation 5/5
Im way beyond years of these students but also going through a grief process so I am finding this not only a thought diversion but something very interesting as far as thinking about moving forward. So many of the findings I have lived through but now want to reexamine Its refreshing.
App is terrible 1/5
By frank in the game
Wanted to use the app on the go so I could keep up with my course. Readings and quizzes are all out of order, for example Week 4 quiz is in the week 2 course work area. Its just a mess. Cant download readings to work off line like advertised. Theres pretty much no use to having the additional app.
Love it! 5/5
Coursera has enable me to learn so much at my own speed, under the supervision of great instructors in an interactive platform
Thank you, Coursera. 5/5
There are a lot of courses for free, online teachers brings hd videos with charisma and passion, online classes are short but interesting with dynamic questions, there are a lot of good things to say about coursera.
Stable enough, works as you expect 5/5
No surprises in this app. That’s a good thing. Works well with video playback and transcriptions. Keeps proper track of where you left off in the course and doesn’t require the phone to be unlocked to listen to lectures. That’s good on battery life. UI isn’t super fancy, but it works.
By Man on his way
When I use the app without internet connection, my progress is not saved.
Learning to learn 5/5
By Fun threw thought
Very good thought provoking classes and Books.🙂💪🏽🤔
It’s broken 1/5
I love course Coursera and if there was a helpline I would be addressing this privately. But… This new app is totally broken. At least it is on my iPhone X. It crashes all the time. I restart it and it starts at the beginning of the video that I was in the middle of. If I don’t know where I was it’s a pain to try to figure out where to start. And I can’t know where I was because tapping the screen while the video’s playing, which should provide a timeline and a pause button, does absolutely nothing. Rotating the phone horizontally doesn’t work properly - the video should fill the screen and it doesn’t fill the screen. Aside from crashing the apples freezes repeatedly. I could go on. Please return to your simpler, functional app until you’ve completed QC and testing.
Eng. PMP 5/5
Coursera give me the opportunity to learn from Professors that otherwise I couldn’t
Awful app 1/5
This is the worst experience I've ever had with an app. It keeps crashing, won't stay open. Horrible experience. I signed up for a class and there doesn't appear to be any way to view the class contents. I can view each section sequentially but there doesn't appear to be any way to go back and view a prior section. When in some sections there are menu items that float over the top of the lesson blocking the ability to read the actual lesson text. I tried to view the help section but each time I open it the app fails and I'm kicked off. I tried sending a request for help and I just get a spinning cursor. I don't understand why so many people rated this app so highly. I don't have this issue with any other apps on my iPad.
Best place to learn 5/5
Coursera has some of the best free courses online. Machine learning and others are made accessible to people from third world countries
Online certificates 5/5
By Muhanned AlSlaiman
A good app that provides verity of courses in different areas. Given courses can be free or not, depends on the trainee whether wants the certificate $$ or a free course without a certificate. Good source for student, trainers, ..., anyone seeks knowledge. Highly recommend the app and the website. Materials available in different types videos, pdf, html pages, and downloadable.
This app gives me heart attacks for 2 reasons.
One, it constantly recommends to switch sessions even though I’m weeks ahead of the schedule.
Two. “Grades” isn’t reflecting the same info. For example, if there were 2 assignments and you only need to complete one if them, completing one should be checked off as in Website, but on the app, it says “Overdue”:(
Goofy tone with seriously good content 5/5
The modules are short(my only complaint is maybe too short) and fun. There is very little filler material and I love the poems he selects.
Very well designed 5/5
Watching videos is easy, taking the quizzes are easy, even when you need to watch videos without sound the closed captions show up nice and not intrusive to the content. Identical experience to the web app which is what every mobile app should be like.
The course contents are scrambled. 3/5
The Google course I’m taking is so messed up in the app that I have to use the web browser to access Coursera instead. Weeks 1, 2, and 3 videos are all in the wrong order or weeks. Tech support said it’s a known bug and they’re working on it.
By yo learning fellow student
I am not sure why but lately the classes keep appearing in random order and from different modules, this is getting annoying it makes it harder to follow throughout, I’ve tried to installed and uninstalled but it doesn’t fix the issue, would really like if someone could look into it, I love this app.
Great Learning Tool 5/5
By Multiclinic PRL
Great Learning Tool, always being updated, excellent teachers and classes. A+++
Unusable for me 1/5
Lectures contents and names do not match. Try to watch a lecture video but always direct me to a quiz or a 404 error webpage. Reinstall didn’t solve this problem.
Love this app. 5/5
By Eyeless Fish
This app is awesome. Thank you for making it accessible to the blind and visually impaired.
Each version a step backward 2/5
Downloading class lectures to watch offline is very buggy. DL starts, appears to complete but is not.
This is an awesome learning but it still have bugs 4/5
This is my favorite app but I have realized that deadlines are not syncing anymore with my calendar on my iPhone with latest iOS. When I check on privacy I can see that Coursera hasn’t even request access to calendar.
Through Coursera app the support email feature isn’t working either
I hope you can fix this, the sooner the better
The brain is the muscle that needs... 5/5
By Nsimba Mawete
My brain, just like everyone who has one, needs to exercise in order to grow stronger and sharper. So, Coursera for me is the gymnasium that has all the brain-lifting-weight machines for nurturing my brain. I am thankful for the people that thought about Coursera and put it in place. It is because of those people that any person around the world that wants to learn can indeed learn.
