Coursera

It's absolutely ideal for programming. Today, most programming environments are available for free and enthusiasts can tinker with programming on their own. But Coursera structures that process and presents iteratively more complex assignments to the student.I found it useful for non-programming. I took a refresher Calculus course and the user was able to enter solutions symbolically which I found impressive.

Quizlet

Quizlet works best with specific units where students need to know a good amount of vocabulary words, maybe between 20-50. It also works best when it is used both in and out of the classroom. It seems less appropriate when there are not many vocabulary words for the students to review.

Pros

Coursera

  • Coursera is very well organized. They are partnered with the most important educational institutions around the world.
  • They are very “up to date” in topics of interest and new courses.
  • Coursera has the widest catalog of courses, all of them with a certification given by them in name of a professional institution, like universities.
  • They also have programs together with universities that allow you to get a Masters Degree and Specializations. (Which is awesome)

Cons

Coursera

  • The problem with Coursera is the moderation in the forums. From the few courses I have taken, many of my classmates were criticized heavily or bullied by other classmates for asking questions in the forum. This hasn’t gotten any attention from the forum moderators which makes the community feel uneasy with helping each other.
  • Most of the courses and the related materials used to be freely available on Coursera. However, with the recent changes, some of the courses are categorized into specific tracks, and they are not free anymore. However I am glad that one can still audit the paid courses, but access to the course materials may be limited.
  • Some courses are only available on specific dates and I have missed out on classes I was really interested in.

I’ve used it a couple of times and... that did great. They take their time, but in the end they solve your issues.

We have not had to use support services for this particular app often. With the ability to change your username only once, students required help logging back in once their account had changed. The response time from the company was slower than expected, but they still helped the teacher not the student to resolve login issues.

Alternatives Considered

Coursera

I think Coursera has the best overall interface. I think you will find that different platforms go in different directions, and have different specialities. For the most part the differences are more in the types of courses they offer than one being particularly better than the other, so it comes down to content for me.

Quizlet

Kahoot! has fun qualities but it doesn’t have some of the versatility for students like Quizlet. Quizlet makes it easy to make vocabulary sets and have different games for students to review on their own, but Kahoot! doesn’t have that feature well. Quizlet gives many options for engagement with students.
