  • I had enrolled in 'The Emergence of the Modern Middle East - Part I' by the same university some time back. Starts today. But I don't think I can manage both. Just checked the one mentioned by @Etat, it looks good. I hope to ride along.

    The problem with coursera is that they are increasingly offering courses which give only Verified Certificate for which they charge money and don't offer any free statement of accomplishment for successfully completing a course. It radically decreases the motivation to complete a course.
    :-(

    ^^ It used to be different earlier. But, this free availability of such courses is a good thing, so we better make use of it while it lasts. I agree that motivation is important, I dropped out of many courses for many reasons but I think the main reason is lack of motivation. Hope this thread helps us there. :)

  • ^^Basic motivation here to learn something relevant to CSE. These certificates don't really matter much in the real world, do they?
    Tell me the procedure ..I m in ...btw how was your medical scienec paper @etat
    Not my best. Hope it doesn't turn out to kill me. Missed many basic points. :(

  • Those who want to pursue verified Certificate mode, here is the trick, so far worked for me, Enroll the verified course and you get a chance to pay in 4 weeks(depend upon the duration of the course), score well, i mean scored +97% in all, and on the last date of the payment due, raise a request that you don't have a credit card so you can't pay, they will ask you to apply for financial assistant of Coursera, That's it, fill the form and you are done.

    So far worked for me and some friends, finished 9 courses this year, All verified, paid nothing.

    Best of Luck.,
