The Coursera app is pretty simple to use. You have to download and install it, and next, you can search for classes and courses. You can choose to enroll in a course, or to audit it. To view what courses you are enrolled in, you have to click on the left sidebar and select Enrollments.
The app has no history of data breaches and it seems as safe, as most apps.
You can download and use the app for free. However, even though there are many Coursera free courses (especially to audit), you have to pay for a great part, especially if you want to obtain a certificate.The Coursera cost varies depending on the class and the degree. Prices start from $9.99 for a guided project and can get up to $45,000 for a degree you have been accepted to.
To run the Coursera app on your device, you will need Android 5.0 and up. When it comes to the Apple version, you will need iOS/iPadOS 12.0 and later or tvOS 11.0 and later.
Getting a Coursera class for a friend or family member (or even a colleague) can make a great sustainable gift.
