Our beta tester community provides invaluable feedback to course instructors so they can spot any errors before their course launches.
The beta tester community is relatively new to Coursera. We invite beta testers who leave really high quality, written feedback to join the community. So far the community is really tiny and limited only to people who have tested a computer science course but we are planning to expand into all subject areas and really grow the community in the next few months.
Our beta testers provide invaluable feedback to course instructors so they can spot any errors before their course launches. It seemed natural that we would create a community space to allow these people to connect with one another and have an easy route to pass along feedback about the beta testing process. In particular we are exploring the best ways to reward our testers so we wanted to open up a good space to facilitate that discussions.
Many of our beta testers are highly qualified and have years of work experience in the fields they test so I’m looking forward to sharing some of their stories with you!
