Review Coursera

Walled Khalid
7.8Good
Simple interface, minimalist design
Glitches
Coursera for Android is an educational app that allows users to continue their path towards higher learning by offering university level courses for free. It started as a website and now after finding its success, has finally made its way to Android to help students study on the go. Though thanks to its honor system of grading, it doesn’t count for much in the professional world. Yet, it’s still an easy and quick way to increase your knowledge and skills.
The app allows you to browse through different subjects offered by top professors around the world and sign up for any class that interests you. From Advanced Sciences to Fine Arts, the app brings you a choice to not only help yourself in your studies but also to increase your technical skills. As a long time user of Coursera, I have used their lectures to pass my Creative Writing class as well as a Quantum Mechanics class.
The app is still somewhat dysfunctional sometimes especially when it comes to videos. There are a few devices on which the video sometimes doesn’t load and you’re stuck with only the audio. This can be a real pain and can serve as a deterrent especially if you’re a normal student who only starts to work on assignments at the last minute. However, the GUI of the app is highly functional but a bit too simplistic and kind of reminded me of empty classrooms.
Coursera gives you an amazing chance to be the cool kid who studies online. With its non-traditional way of learning, you can learn various new subjects from few of the best professors in the world. There are times when the video stream does glitch up but that’s an issue that can be resolved with future updates.
