"Coursera: A More Effective Way to Teach"

What do you like best?

Coursera's format provides a clear framework for learning and goal-directed outcomes in order for online teaching to be implemented in a straightforward manner. It allows for across-the-board standardization of expectations and grading, making it easy for large groups of people to learn content in an online format without necessarily interacting with one another directly.

What do you dislike?

There are some aspects of the layout that create challenges--it can be hard to return to the main page and navigate back to the section of the course that you're in. I wish there were fewer steps involved there. In addition, the video / note download feature is a little clunky; being able to attack notes or outlines to the videos is a great feature, but would be more useful if all of those notes were available on a separate page instead of having to be individually downloaded through the video pages one at a time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that the format of the course you are considering implementing through Coursera is one that is well-suited to the format of the website itself. Highly recommend examining already-implemented successful courses that are live to see what kind of formats and grading schemes have worked best in the past.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allowing for widespread self-directed learning that is still standardized across learners and knowing that people are meeting the same endpoint; working on a large volume of course material in a short amount of time and enabling different kinds of mastery through the quiz feature

What do you dislike?

No me gusta que en esta herramienta algunos cursos de pago no permiten que se evalúen los test que realizo si no estoy inscrita en una versión paga

"Excellent for learning new skills"

What do you like best?

Coursera is perfect solution for for being able to view classes online through videos as well as homework. If the product has been used by others, it is very easy to add the business account. It has detailed and full courses to allow you to take courses on different subjects. and It tracks the progress for you, and you can go at your own pace usually.

What do you dislike?

When you're just looking for quick info to for a one off use use and don't need a full length course to learn how to do a new skill, It is sometimes less useflul than a short youtube video.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a solid choice, but there are other competitors to be aware of as well

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online courses that you can do at own pace allows you to evelop new and additionalskills to complete work and projects.

"Best online learning platform"

What do you like best?

The way they explain things, the design of the exercises is simply the best I've seen so far. The prfoseros that give the courses, note that they are very qualified and with a lot of experience.

Taking a Coursera course is a wonderful experience that I recommend.

What do you dislike?

I am not a huge fan of forums as the main form of communication between classmates. It did not create a sense of group-learning for me; it just felt like another task to check off the list. I would rather either be a completely independent learner or be engaged in meaningful learning with others beyond a requirement to post/respond a certain number of times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Taking a Coursera course is a wonderful experience that I recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Deep learning. I learned everything, basic concepts and advanced problem solutions.

"Course Era bridges the skill-gap"

What do you like best?

Course-Era has free and not so expensive paid content that helps you quickly come up to speed on software trends, it has a spectrum of offering on a wide range of subjects and is comparable to Edx and Udemy.

What do you dislike?

CourseEra has no live projects like Udacity has.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Course Era offers many masters in business and I.T, coupled with Edx and Udemy, it can be a great resource. it is different from Udemy and Edx and complimentary.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Professional Courses for promoting NLIDB instead of cumbersome SQL coding using services like elastic search.

"Your professional dreams come true by Coursera"

What do you like best?

Majority training/courses are state of the art and trainers are all gurus and experienced professionals of the field. High quality material is delivered by experienced professionals around the world.almost all gaps are covered for which we look for.Time span for the training/courses are very optimum. Completely online product. Every level of training/courses are covered.In short new quality learning standard is set.Discussion forums are quiet helpful.

What do you dislike?

In some training/courses the accent become very hard to understand though transcripts are provided but it effects the quality.There must be at least complete protected archive available to download and also same must be available in far future for reference and review. there should be categorized chat rooms of coursera community available having different level of expertise available related to category. sometime we feel that there should be some remote desktop access kind of facility to handle the issues in practical problems/codes etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly Recommended if you in search of state of the art work and value quality and timeliness.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great skills are developed by availing the chance of its training/courses. For example field of Data Science based plans are availed are highly benefited for all of us.

"Helps you learn quickly and efficiently "

What do you like best?

I love that this program allows me to take online classes that I can easily manipulate as well as work my full time job. They offer a wide range of subjects which always peak my interest. I like that the courses do not last too long and you are able to have enough time to study for your quizzes and test. I think that by allowing the courses to be provided on-demand it allows more efficiency and better results.

What do you dislike?

If you are not used to taking online classes you may have to adjust to the setup seeing that you will be watching video lectures and studying alone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and take some courses and you'll definitely find ones that you love.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to achieve a degree that can further my career

"Coursera Review"

What do you like best?

Coursera is on the right track for providing education through the Internet. Overall, they have a wide selection of topics to learn, limited by the amount of ways you would like to challenge yourself.

What do you dislike?

It looks like my problems with Coursera are consistent with other users. NO free classes. The fine print is confusing enough that you'll wind up getting charged, and they "don't do refunds".

Recommendations to others considering the product

The company has good content but bad support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Unfortunate for Coursera, the have some problems. Pricing terms & conditions, no phone number, bad support.

Wide variety of courses, training and development programs to help keep the team motivated, learning and growing. The courses are ondemand and allows for flexibility.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't much to dislike about Coursera to be honest. They help build you custom training and development programs to meet your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Coursera in my previous jobs to help scale and grow a team of young professionals. The flexibility was key as we were under resourced but I wanted a way to promote extended learning and development of skills.

What do you like best?

I enjoy the ability to take skill specific courses so that. I can better tend to my Marketing Campaigns and duties. Being able to work on a specific skill allows me the ability to optimize project in real time.

What do you dislike?

From time to time, there are a number of courses that start within the next couple days so it becomes a waiting game before being able to jump right in to learn.

Obtaining skills that necessary to function and optimize in an ever-changing world. The benefits are endless. It is very easy to go at your own pace so that you are able to obtain these skills in real time and revisit anything necessary to make sure that your skills are honed appropriately.

"Good to learn new skill"

What do you like best?

Coursera is already well known for being able to view classes online through videos and sometimes homework. If the product has been used by others, it's easy to add the business account. It tends to have detailed and full courses to take deep dives into different subjects. It tracks the progress and you can usually go at your own pace.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't always help more than a youtube video. Sometimes you're just looking for a quick how to for a one off use case and don't need a full length course to learn how to do something.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a solid choice, but there are other competitors to look into as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an instructional designer it's important to learn what's the latest and greatest and with coursera you can get certified easily.
