What can I do on the Coursera mobile app?
You can watch lecture videos, view course material (such as the syllabus or recommended readings), complete assignments, and browse information about upcoming courses on the mobile app. Please note that some assignments, such as peer assessments, cannot be completed on the mobile app. In courses with peer assessment or forum-based assignments, you will need to complete the course using the full version of Coursera on the web to receive full credit.
Can I do in-video quizzes on the mobile app?
Not yet! We’re working on this feature for future releases, as we realize it’s one many students want.
Is the Coursera mobile app free?
Yes! The app is completely free, though data costs incurred by accessing the app’s content are the user’s responsibility.
How can I download lectures for offline viewing on the Coursera mobile app?
It’s easy! Just click the down arrow next to video titles to download individual videos for offline viewing. The download icon at the top of the screen will allow you to download all the videos on that page at once.
I can't sign in on the Coursera mobile app. What should I do?
Please try logging in through the web, where you’ll be able to request a password reset. If the problem persists (i.e. you are able to log into Coursera’s website, but not the mobile app), please contact us
I’m an on-campus student taking a private Coursera course through my university. Can I use the app?
Not yet--courses that aren’t on public Coursera accounts (such as those accessed through university-specific subdomains such as stanford.coursera.org) aren’t available on the Coursera mobile app. We hope we’ll be able to expand our scope soon!
