Coursera, for those of you who haven’t heard about it before, is an awesome online service that allows users to tune-in to some great courses from more than 80 top universities and organizations free of charge. That’s right – it provides free knowledge to anyone interested into expanding his/her horizons. And now it got an iPhone app, with Android version coming soon.
The application allows you to browse and search for courses, view personal course dashboard, download and stream videos (with the ability to change video speed playback), access syllabus and take quizzes. Moreover, you can also enroll for courses you fancy, but you can’t take part in the discussion forums, read supplemental materials or complete assignments. For those tasks you’ll still need a computer…
We love Coursera and can’t but recommend all iPhone users to try it out. Whether you’re a current student, working professional, or lifelong learner – you’ll find something interesting. Check it out and keep learning even while away from your computer.
