Overall Satisfaction with Coursera

Coursera is one of my top primary sources for online education where I attend classes in Computer Science, math and related disciplines, provided by the best educators from leading universities. I personally consider learning Coursera as a preparatory step for post-graduating to a university and receiving a bachelor's degree rather than getting a job.
  • MOOC platform
  • Online learning
  • Classic academia education
  • Course videos sometimes very childish
  • More infographics, graphs
  • Renewed the path to education
  • Increased overall quality of work
  • edx
Coursera has wide range of disciplines and some subjects other MOOC platforms do not have. I am using Coursera along with other online educational platforms and courses to arrange courses on a complex schedule. Coursera has a free option (free listener) where students are able to attend without paying. Simply speaking, Coursera has nice intuitive web UI.
Coursera, in my opinion, is suitable for everyone who is looking for either work or training in their profession, or for self-education. "Contraindications" for using Coursera probably do not exist because knowledge is always in price and useful. If a person has free time and desire to extend his or her knowledge, then Coursera is one of the best assistants in this matter.
