Coursera

March 21, 2017

Coursera app virtually opens the doors to over 140 top-tier universities and educational institutions (such as Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, and University of Amsterdam, to name a few) from all around the world. It offers 1,700 courses across 160+ specializations, covering domains like business, data science, computer science, personal development, language learning, arts & humanities, social sciences, physical science & engineering, life sciences, and math & logic, among others.

 

Once you’ve the app installed on your phone, you can browse through the catalog and pick the specialization to join. For instance, you can choose to earn a specialization in Healthcare Marketplace by University of Minnesota, or Java Programming and Software Engineering fundamentals by Duke University. Note: If you are not interested in a specialization, you can also search and enroll in individual courses.

 

Each specialization comprises a series of courses, projects and certificate of completion. Before joining a specialization, you can see the price of individual courses, along with the syllabus covered by each course, duration, language, level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), and lessons that you’ll cover in the week 1, week 2, and so on. You can either pay by course or pay for all the courses included in the specialization in advance.

 

Courses by Coursera last approximately four to ten weeks, with two to six hours of video lectures a week. Courses also include quizzes, weekly exercises, assignments, and sometimes a final project or exam. And yes, you’ll get a Course Certificate signed by the instructor(s) at the end of the each course. The certificate will also carry a logo of the partner institution, and a verification URL that allows others to check the certificate’s authenticity.

 

And if you want a Specialization Certificate, you’ll need the Course Certificate for each course in the specialization.

 

To sum up, Coursera courses are mobile-friendly and one can also download the videos for offline viewing. Along with the offline access feature, the app also offers audio mode wherein instead of watching videos, you can listen to the video content in audio mode when the phone’s battery is low. Courses are available in multiple languages, such as Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Russian.

 

So, if you are willing to improve your job prospects by learning new specializations/courses on the move, you must give Coursera app a try. It is good to know that India is Coursera’s second-largest market after US with more than 1.8 million Indian learners enrolled in various courses.
