Coursera’s new iOS app makes mobile learning beyond simple
Whether you’re a current Coursera online student or simply looking to enhance your understanding of the world, listen up. One of the big MOOC (Massively Open Online Courses) leaders has just launched a mobile app designed to make mobile learning incredibly simple.
From the looks of it, they’ve succeeded.
Even in the first iteration of the app, I’m quite impressed with how simple and straightforward the interface and content is. It’s accessible, clean, and simple to use. That means it’s great for teachers, school leaders, and students of just about any technological skill level. Better still, it means the future iterations of the app are going to be even better. Look for a lot of useful features over the coming months.
In the tumultuous world of MOOCs, it’s clear that companies must innovate to make their dream of educating the world a reality. This app is a natural step for Coursera and shows that they’re taking big strides to make sure you can learn wherever you want to.
