Terrible Platform, Support, and a Mediocre Course

1.0 rating
July 29, 2020

The course which is a specialization in SEO is completely outdated. They are using content from 2013, most of the tools displayed for measuring different aspects of technical SEO have changed or don’t exist. Coursera is charging a monthly subscription way higher than any other online learning platform.
There are few students to grade assignments, so grades take longer than expected to get back. Most of the times the feedback given by other students is absolutely terrible, and irrelevant to instructions. Seems like they didn’t take the same course you did.
Support is also bad, they have one standard way of doing things and are incapable of helping you in a particular case.
At the end I did receive a course certification, which I am ashamed to even add to Linkedin, because although it may say “completed SEO specialization” it really means “wasted his/her time”.
I highly recommend to do better research on online courses and stay away from Coursera.

Coursera Experience

I really like that Coursera is constantly updating their program courses, learning paths, and features. The team works diligently to put out quality material that learners will enjoy. The Coursera team is always eager to learn how they can improve learning features for our students. Most importantly, the Google Cloud Platform feature enables our students to master their skills in cloud computing which is highly beneficial to both the learner and the organization. Variety is also very important for learning, therefore, being that Coursera offers specializations, individual courses, Mastertrack certificates, and degrees is fantastic! They also offer some free courses which are always a plus for a new learner or someone looking for learning opportunities.

Keep Learning and Growing with Linkedin

I really like this platform as you get many choices and lectures given by experienced people in their respective fields. Moreover, you can share your progress later on the Linkedin profile by putting certified under the License and Certification section, which makes you stand out.

The issues I had with personal growth and self-reflection in a professional environment have been solved through LinkedIn Learning. I’ve realized the benefits of online courses and video tutorials through this service.

How Udemy is more convenient than any other educational systems?

5.0 rating
July 29, 2020

Downloading the course to watch later offline in the mobile app is the best feature that I have used many times but mostly I use it on the web while working so that I can learn and implement the newly learned material right away to the game projects I am working on. I am a game developer and I love the sales on the Udemy which just cost the almost every course to be under 12$ or sometimes 9.99$ which was great for the student like me but now I am employed because of the skills that I have learned from the Udemy instructors. I have purchased the courses of the best seller of the game development courses and really it helped me alot in my professional carrier I personally recommend this online learning platform. There are coursera and many more available but its most affordable and authentic site a student can choose.
