Häufig gestellte Fragen

  • Sobald Sie sich für ein Zertifikat angemeldet haben, haben Sie Zugriff auf alle Videos, Quizspiele und Programmieraufgaben (falls zutreffend). Aufgaben, die von anderen Kursteilnehmern bewertet werden, können erst dann eingereicht und überprüft werden, wenn Ihr Unterricht begonnen hat. Wenn Sie sich den Kurs anschauen möchten, ohne ihn zu kaufen, können Sie womöglich auf bestimmte Aufgaben nicht zugreifen.

  • Wenn Sie sich für den Kurs anmelden, erhalten Sie Zugriff auf alle Kurse der Spezialisierung und Sie erhalten nach Abschluss aller Arbeiten ein Zertifikat. Ihr elektronisches Zertifikat wird zu Ihrer Seite „Errungenschaften“ hinzugefügt – von dort können Sie Ihr Zertifikat ausdrucken oder es zu Ihrem LinkedIn Profil hinzufügen. Wenn Sie nur lesen und den Inhalt des Kurses anzeigen möchten, können Sie kostenlos als Gast an dem Kurs teilnehmen.

  • No. Completion of a Coursera course does not earn you academic credit from Duke; therefore, Duke is not able to provide you with a university transcript. However, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile.
