Great Customer Support! Coursera review

Great Customer Support!I subscribed for two courses at the same time throughout a 6 month period. I didn’t know that this would lead to two payments per month. I contacted coursera and the next day they replied and very generously refunded me for one of my subscriptions for the whole 6-month duration.

Support contact information almost impossible to find

*Update* while it was extremely difficult to contact support, once I did get in touch with someone the subscription amount was refunded for two months. It had been a carry over from a course my daughter accidentally subscribed to and was not visible on my profile. The refund was with the caveat that it was a one time event. I felt fairly treated financially with the refund. However, like many subscription services there is a lack of transparency for the charges in my opinion. So the bottom line is that if there was a course I really wanted to take from Coursera I would be careful with how it is charged. My original review is below*Incredibly difficult to contact support. My credit card is being charged without any subscriptions or courses being taken. My profile is empty. I took one small course for $13 and I think the entire thing is a scam.

I really enjoyed two courses (management and business). But another (programming) course was very, very long. Overall a good experience!

Quality depends on course selection

First of all, quality depends which courses you take at Coursera. I took two very long (and a bit boring) courses, but the other courses I took were always quite good. Some of the best universities offer their courses on that platform!

The descriptions of charges are unclear, and a lot of the content is of bad quality, in my opinion. Udemy, LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda), and many online professional certification courses curate their content much better, and each certification costs significantly less. After I finish what I have already started on Coursera, I doubt I will ever touch the platform again. And I think that’s going to be the case with most users. It’s just going to be another start-up that inevitably goes bust after failing to provide the service they advertise.

No Email No chat, 300$ sneakily taken for a course that I never even finished. Theft.
