Coursera Courses app is simply phenomenal. The simple UI with a metro style design, portraying the different subject matters that one can choose from to start prepping up,makes it a breeze to use. An initial account needs to be set up and then one can choose anything from Arts to Medicine to begin learning.
The courses are varied, stretching from “Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression” under Medicine to “Public Economics and Global Trends” from the hallowed portals of Wharton. A simple left pane organizes all your courses under My Courses Tab helping one keep track of all the courses one is registered to, further more academic notes can be downloaded for offline reading.
Course highlights, professor in charge duration, medium of study and workload are all elaborately explained under each course along with a small video introducing the course: all in one window making it the user’s paradise. Course videos can be downloaded for offline viewing and every course is classified chronologically under Past, Current and Upcoming.
The quality of the app is simply phenomenal, with no glitches at all, except for the fact that a strong data connection is absolutely essential for the application as the courses rely heavily on videos.
