Overall Satisfaction with Coursera

We use Coursera to to keep some of our organization members up to date. We sometimes let them choose which courses they want to take (of course... it should always be related to what they do in our organization), and sometimes we choose what we think is important to learn or to be up to date.
This helps to make our workers happier, because they learn, they feel they are learning new things, and of course... it adds more value to our workers, which means it adds more value to our company.
  • 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)
  • Some of the courses (very few) have some old information (more than 2 years), and in some areas like technology the information has to be very new and updated.
  • Some professors or people doing videos are not good in front of the camera, they should train their people a little bit more for those things.
  • The most important impact Coursera has made to us is that our organization members apply that knowledge in their everyday jobs.
  • It’s better to invest in someone’s knowledge than paying for people who are not prepared.
  • Our workers are happier because they are learning.
Coursera has a wider variety of courses and more institutions as partners. The certifications Coursera gives, have more value than other brands.
I’ve used it a couple of times and... that did great. They take their time, but in the end they solve your issues.

Would you buy Coursera again?

Yes

I think that Coursera is well suited in all scenarios—for example, for people who don't have a degree but just want knowledge in specific areas.
And for people with a professional degree looking for something new to learn, to be updated in some specific areas, or even new areas, it's great.
And for those who are looking to get a masters degree from a well-known institution or an international one, this is a good option.
