Any courses to beta  test this week?

Hello @na60 

Thanks  for posting your concern on the forum.

As for the query.

I would recommend going through the following information.

 

Become a Coursera beta tester

Beta testers are experts and enthusiasts who review Coursera courses before they open to the public and give feedback to instructors.

If you become a Coursera beta tester, we will invite you to test courses in your subject area as they are ready. There is no commitment to test a specific number of courses. 

To sign up, fill out our beta tester form.

Once you sign up, it may take up to 4 weeks for a beta tester invitation. Your invitation link will be valid for 1 year.

If you have recently accepted your invitation to become a beta tester, you will not have access to test new courses until the following Monday. Please use this time to work through the short beta tester training course which will help you to provide the most targeted and usable feedback possible.

 

If you are already a beta tester but somehow didn’t receive the invitation, then you can join the Beta Tester forum via this link.

Hope this helps.

Let me know whether the issue is resolved.

Warm regards,

Saheli

sahelibasu23 , thank you for your information.  I have been a beta tester for several years, and have regularly received e-mail notifications.  I did not receive one this week, and I decided to use the forum to check on the status. Please do not go to any trouble on my part.  I will just wait for next week’s offerings.   I did make some changes in my profile and this may have caused a problem. Again, thank you for your concern.

I hope I may use this thread to continue the question. Are there courses to beta test for the current period 12th April - 20th April?

I hope to get the new courses in the forum, too.

 

Since it seems to be impossible to find the problem why some people don’t get the invitation mails anymore. I wish there was a way to fix this. Did somebody look into this? Is there a pattern (like certain email providers)?

 

The forum is the only way for some beta tester to find out about the new courses. For some courses it is already hard to really test them in one week but if you only have a few days because the courses don’t get posted here it is even more difficult.
