  • Area for lots of improvements here...

    I hope Coursera invests more into making this app more seamless and bug free. There are many issues to iron out, especially related to the video player and download functionality. Also, the UI seems to be all over the place, for example you can browse a course’s content in some parts of the app but there is no easy access to see the actual material (aka you can’t click on the title of the video in those locations to go to that lesson etc...) I use the app mostly on my iPad Pro + iPhone XR and I have lots of issues. But I’ll still use it since it’s less awkward than using my 15” MBP on the bus.
  • Mobile version is meh

    Video doesn't integrate to do "high speed scrubbing". In other words, you tap to start and stop video. When you tap to rewind, the video immediately starts playing again. This requires you to tap twice; once to move the needle and once to stop the video from automatically playing. It would be nice to see the video "rewind" while moving the needle back. I'm guessing video always needs to be downloaded? When in the middle of speaking a sentence, the app opens up questions.
  • Love learning and this app

    It’s an amazing app with courses from top and reputable schools! I have been able to learn so many different topics from it
  • Doesn’t work and bad service

    The app would not recognize my subscription, even after online support verified. They blamed it on me subscribing through iTunes which is weird. If that is a problem don’t make it an option. You can’t talk to a live person on the phone. Only email and chat. I had to get a refund via apple. I would stay away considering there are plenty of good competitors.

    Loved the course thus far but the only issue I have is with correspondence and some of the labs. Not getting a clear understanding on some issues. Instructions say one thing but the actual lab appears to be different. 😐

  • no streaming is frustrating

    By gogomargo12345
    in this day and age i expect to get my content when i want it—it looks like you have to download material before you can watch it, which feels wildly slow when you can stream from youtube, insta, spotify. and the downloading speed is enough to make me give up on the mobile app altogether. also “oops, something went wrong, check your network connection” is an annoying error message when my network connection is fine and i’m pretty sure the content just won’t play until it’s been downloaded. at the very least, make your error messages more accurate to what’s goin on.

    My mom forces me to do medical neuroscience and I am in 5th grade and I don’t understand a thing and she says "look it up the answers on google and I can’t and it took me 3 hours to do a test! It’s to hard for me and even if you look up the answers it’s still very very hard because it is multiple choice. Please block me on Coursera😡😤😭
  • Good site, bad app for iPad

    Coursera logged me out and now says I can’t log in because I don’t have internet... Well I’m writing this review using internet! The videos are also not in HD on iPad like they are on Android and desktop.

    although I have updated to latest version, I receive a massage says you are offline. The app is not working👆🏼
  • Downloads are broken

    Downloads are very flaky. Most of the time now clicking on the download icon does nothing. Used to work fine a few months ago but not in recent versions.
  • Can’t connect

    By B-Soft
    Can’t do anything with the app just the home screen and that’s it. When I click on my profile or search course it kept telling me no internet connect weather using WiFi or cell data. So annoying!
  • Design Flaw

    By Charliewwwu
    There is a big design flaw — once you tap the offline mode in setting, you will never be able to switch back unless you reinstall it.....
  • Slow

    By george vorobiov
    For same reason the app is extremely slow to load on the latest iPad. Checked the download speed, no issues. Moreover, if you exit a course and then click is again, it takes the same time, more than a minute most of the time. Unacceptable.
  • Issues positive vs negative

    The course content is superb and the professors are excellent except when professors have issues speaking English. I had difficulty understanding some professors and became frustrated and withdrew from the course. Course variety is very good. My university will not accept my completed courses. I would like to see a definitive understanding between online Coursera and all universities. I’ve had better and more sophisticated classes with Coursera than I have had with my University of Washington. I want to finish my BA or BFA at University of Washington and trying to interface with them and trying to prove that the course I’m enrolled in with Coursera is impossible.
  • A Great Place To Learn & Way To Brush Up

    For professionals and or almost anyone else, this is a great way and place to learn and to brush or keep up with the subjects of law, in my case. The world will be a better place if we taught the law to youth early. GlobalThiessMarketPlace GlobalThiess

  • An Incredible Educational Resource

    5
    By RockChalkJNO
    Hello Coursera team and everyone, When I first stumbled upon Coursera, or rather, discovered through searching for just such a program and resource, I had no idea what an invaluable tool it would be for me. Coursera offers many courses on varying topics by some of the best Universities I’ve ever heard of. Coursera gives me the (free) opportunity to conduct private study into topics quite similar to topics I need to know for my future academic credentials. My route towards my educational end goals may be unorthodox; such as conducting private studies followed by CBEs (Credit By Exams) as well as submitted proof of knowledge gained from external sources from my institution (The University of Kansas). I would like to personally thank everyone who helped to program, construct, and make Coursera a valuable resource to anyone in need of knowledge. Sincerely, Jacob Olson
  • Excellent for self learning

    I used coursera twice thus far (learning how to learn and medical neuroscience), the app is very neat, tracks progress, and simple to maneuver. Loading the course material takes quite sometime, but that's not too bad.
  • No release notes

    1
    By G-Mo
    Of course you update the app regularly, but the release notes tell us *what* you updated, so that we know if we want it on our devices or not. Since you don't provide release notes, we must assume that what you've added this release is something you don't want us to tell about, most likely that you're sending every test we fail to all the college campuses so that they'll know not to let us in. Also, I had to stop using the app as it'll randomly come across something that can only be done "on a computer". Just use the computer instead of the app.
  • Horrible Customer Service

    By Ash268463
    I had purchased a specialization and after two weeks it stopped working with a monthly subscription. Coursera REFUSED to help in anyway to get this resolved. I will never be using Coursera ever again because of this! It is a waste of money!!!!

  • Latest update completely freezes

    1
    By assfghjklqwertyuytreeq
    UI completely freezes up after a few minutes navigating classes. Before that, links to "read more" don't do anything. It seems like the first two (or more?) letters of every class description are missing. And now, I'm finding I can't load the course materials page at all. Snowballs, freezes, then app finally crashes. You guys messed something up in this latest version. Maybe send your engineers to the reactive courses you offer...not on the iphone app at least.
  • Top notch

    By Reidric
    I love this app/program honestly it’s amazing! I can do my classes on the go online and off it keeps me up to date with calendars and best of all if I have not need the experience I can test these classes out for free to see if it’s a match. Any field you’re in I recommend taking look it could give you the upper hand in the long run. To the creators, thank you for having this available!!!!
  • Labs

    By juan santacruz
    I love it. But some times, I’m having hard time with labs.
  • Good classes, somewhat buggy app with strange animations

    3
    By Antonimat
    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. [solved in 2019] 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) 4. Lots of information is no longer visible in the app and it tries to kick you out to the browser, but even this functionality appears to be broken and you are presented with blank screen instead of content occasionally. Solution suggested by support is to use web browser... on desktop... 🤦‍♂️

  • Needs Playback Rate on Apple TV

    5
    By J_shua
    This is a great app, I use the website for the most part, but I am trying to use the Apple TV app more. I can’t however because the TV app lacks the ability to increase/decrease the Playback Rate (playing the video at 0.5x speed, 1.5x speed etc.) Please add this feature as soon as you all can.
  • Amazing

    This website is simply amazing. Nothing satisfies my curious soul more than coursera. Take advantage of the opportunity to take a class on any topic you wish- taught by the best professors in the world- at your own pace- for FREE!
  • Loving this app and the opportunities it provides

    By Perseverance of the Human Soul
    Update: this service and my courses continue to be awesome. Thank you so much! Awesome selection in terms of courses/departments/universities; the classes are accessible and not too difficult for everyone to take something from it. Of course it depends on what courses you pursue... the data science courses (i.e. ibm certificate program) are not anything to take lightly. These courses offer awesome certificates I will be using to better market myself on LinkedIn.

  • Amazing Class- Screen Casts are Super Helpful

    5
    By Poodledaddy
    I am auditing this class so some of the material is not available to me but the screen casts and the order of the lesson material are exemplary. If you have ever tried to learn something about excel off of You Tube you know that teachers run through something way too fast and you spend a lot of time rewatching and pausing. These screencasts are perfectly paced and easy to follow. The end of lesson post tests are challenging but fair. Great experience and next time I won’t be a cheapskate and actually pay for the class.
  • Great for resume building

    I love this app. I tell everyone about it. I’m a very highly trained electrician with electrical understanding down to the subatomic level. But my education is very limited. So jobs that I can do better then someone with a degree does I can’t get because I have no degree. But with this app I can get certifications and specialities in my field showing I know how to do the jobs I want. Plus I love that I can get courses from all over the world.
  • Annoying

    I audited a course and did a quiz that was supposed to count towards a grade and only when I was completely finished with the quiz did it inform me that I had to pay to get a grade. Thanks for wasting my time.

  • Updates are Nice

    By Jessamuhca
    The app is good, but something I love that I don’t see from other apps is their update transparency. They list the changes, and I appreciate that. Most apps just say “bug fixes and enhancements” every single time, even for big interface changes. Thanks.
