I use the Coursera app all of the time. Unfortunately over the past month I am unable to access videos I have downloaded offline. The app seems to need some internet to load the page with the downloads. This defeats the purpose, especially when without service or internet while flying. It used to be one of my favorite parts of the app.
Coursera itself is a great concept and I enjoy using it. The iPad app, though, has both kept charging me after I canceled a subscription and more recently re-subscribed me to two classes I finished over a year ago! Coursera says it’s Apple’s billing issue, Apple says the charges are non-refundable. I’d recommend Coursera but steer clear of the iPad app.
She has the most interesting course. It would help if she slows the pace some. And when she turns to slides it is hard to hear. I am missing great info and having to rewind. Thank you
Split view in iPad is half the time the transcript section of the videom is completely grayed out... Additionally when I download videos for offline viewing I expect to watch them without network connection. When you close the app fully then open it you need a network connection to get into the "class weekly view" to access your offline media. Defeats the purpose offline media
I love Coursera but this app is a disaster. It’s asking me to enroll in courses I’m already in, then says “something went wrong” when I try to proceed. Additionally, the profile section doesn’t load at all. Please fix!
But I have NO CLUE how much it’ll cost me because of the 7 day free trial. So I can’t plan or decide if using this app is a better use of my time than going back to CC. Great job guys.
The video presentations are very easy to follow. So much knowledge is conveyed, which inspires a desire in one to want to no more.
I love Coursera for their service. They’ve helped me figure out if I’d like a new career path for barely a fraction of a price of enrolling at some online college course. The info is valuable, the pace you can learn at is very flexible, and the pricing is reasonable. The app’s stability however needs some work. A few problems I’ve encountered that are pretty annoying: Whenever I try to delete a download on the main page of the course, the app freezes and crashes. Items I’ve completed on a different device won’t sync over. Can be confusing sometimes trying to remember where I left off. Downloads won’t work in general. I’ll have to create a hotspot to get it working, and I recently found out Verizon charges for that so that’s no longer an option. Hopefully these can be fixed soon, once they are it would really be a perfect app.
I’ve been trying to do courses during my daily train commute. The course itself is great, but I continue to run into technical problems: 1) I cannot reply to any discussion questions from the app. I contacted support about this and they asked some routine questions, but ultimately suggested I just use the desktop browser. I have the latest version of iOS and the latest version of this app. Why have a mobile app if it doesn’t work and you don’t intend to fix it? 2) Items that have been completed (and show as completed on desktop) consistently show as incomplete in the app. 3) I typed out a long support ticket, which then would not submit through the app. Like I said, the content is good. But the app has bugs that really degrade the user experience and make it challenging for me to justify continuing to use, since my commute time is the best time to do courses.
I have a question about a course. It shows it’s 3 of 5. I can’t find 1 and 2. Are they somewhere I can go and do them. There’s no way to get help. Help.
