App Reviews

  • The desktop version is better...

    By sky_blue02
    I much preferred both the website and the app before all the visual changes — they were both easier to navigate and more reliable. Since the updates, I’ve used both much less. That said, the desktop version is better than this app, which I’ve had continual problems with — crashing, things not loading, and the app incorrectly keeping track of where I am in a course when auditing it. I’ve been using other sites much more because of this (I think that speaks volumes). I have had problems with edX and Udemy but not nearly as bad as with Coursera (both online and off). If you encounter issues like I did, try the website using a desktop computer. I found that much better in many regards. The issue with Coursera not properly tracking progress when you audit a course can be worked around by keeping a browser tab open to the course page with the week you’re working on visible. It’s a shame. I used to love this site and its app. It just has really gone downhill...
  • I hope it gets better—because it’s awesome

    I love this app. I took one of the most interesting classes that I’ve ever taken (and that’s coming from a 5th year Ph.D. student, studying mechanical engineering) from the comfort of my own couch every night for 30 minutes with the tv in the background. The class was really interesting, and while coursera is not responsible for the great quality of the lecture videos, they are responsible for providing a platform for me to access the lecture videos in the first place. And this is why I think that coursera is a brilliant app. The actual software of the app is good, but I do think that the team responsible for the app layout needs to work on the navigation a little bit. I think if this app had a makeover by the team that developed Airbnb, and letgo.. Then this app would probably be more popular.
  • Awesome App

    Overall I throughly enjoy the ease of using this app for my study time. Most things work fluidly, and being able to download lessons on wifi for later use is a huge plus. There are a few things that could be improved. As of now you can‘t take some tests on mobile, which is understandable. Sometimes the transcripts move too far up, not too terribly but I do prefer to read along while listening. Occasionally they would like you to post on forum to better bring the learners together, this in and of itself is ok, but when it initially pops up you can‘t post from that window, instead you have to close it and go to actual forum portion of app and find your thread. So far outside of these, everything in the app works great! A definite to download if you‘re using the Coursera program!
  • Not a good App

    Coursera is good when you sign up for one course, & one payment only for that course. Then... they keep charging class after class even after you only signed up for one topic out of the entire outline. Their rules are: you pay one topic after the free trial for your certificate. Not an entire year contract, as I was beginning to get billed. I have to wait until next month to see if I am re-billed, and hope my $$ is returned for this extra month I was charged! The fine print said I would only get billed once, for the course I wanted. If I wanted to take the full outline then I'd have to pay the yearly fee, but my point is I ONLY SIGNED UP FOR ONE CERTIFICATE!! So, there's no need for further billing....although they re-billed me again the following month. :( Very disappointing for my pocket! Scam app, report to remove ASAP! Took my money even though I wasn’t using their course anymore, and I’m very upset. Take Coursera down! Awful app.
  • Good - Would Like an “Interested” Section

    By MarySwansonite1225
    I really like the app because I can play the video and listen to the audio while I’m driving. It would be nice if there was a just audio of the courses included for ease. My biggest desire is to be able to search through the course catalog and select courses that I’m interested in taking and be reminded to sign up for them if they start soon. I would take a lot more classes if there was a curated section of courses I hit “like” or “interested” or “save for later.” Sometimes I don’t have the money upfront or am on the fence about a course and it would be nice to have a section to themselves so I don’t have to restart my search.
  • Great app and courses

    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.
  • Syncing is a pain!

    1
    By A Coursera fan
    I like the app in some ways, but I am leaving a one star review, hoping they look into this problem and fix it! Syncing should be a trivial feature, not a painful as it is! I often use the app offline. I want my advancement in a course material to be transfered to my account when I go online, but that doesn't happen. There is no button to use to sync after connecting to internet. It is suppsed to happen automatically, but in my case it does NOT happen! I could figure out how to enforce it in an earlier version, but that doesn't work now. There are other problems with this app. I can see a chekmark next to quiz that I completed on a computer. So the app has received the info from the cloud. It even shows my passing grade in the grade tab area, and still shows the quiz is overdue!!!
  • It’s broken

    By MFAddict
    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.
  • There are bugs somewhere

    By ljwinkler
    Taking a second course, I’ve discovered a need which seems missing. There doesn’t seem to be a way to edit one’s forum entry. ————— prior review ———- I've only taken one course on Coursera so I have only narrow experience. The experience I have though is somewhat negative, but I don't know if the problems lie with the app, or the setup and programming on the back end. First experience and consequences. As I watched course videos, many times the system did not recognize that I had watched the video, though I had, and had done so many times in hope that a check mark would appear indicating I had completed this step in the course. The result was assignments were marked as overdue. Second experience. Mini-tests were given, but some items required free form input, but app did not display the iPad keyboard, which meant the question was not answered. Third experience. Multi-choice items sometimes were rendered as radio button rather than checkboxes, allowing only one choice instead of multiple.
  • Significant Steps Backward

    By Mynameislazy
    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.
