Cannot access the Course Content I tested in the Past

Hi Coursera,

I am testing a course today (Reinforcement Learning by U of Alberta); to test it well I need some of the homework parts from two other courses that I also tested probably a year ago (these are Multivariate Calculus and PCA analysis - 2nd and 3rd courses of the Specialization Mathematics for Machine Learning - by Imperial).

The problem is that I am refused the access to these two courses and am told that my email is not part of the people who were testers. However, I was a tester and I even have an invite email for testing these courses, and probably have feedback screenshots that I provided/submitted.
Can someone restore my access to these courses?
Thanks!
George

Hi @g1900. Please send an email to beta-test@coursera.org if you're still not getting access. Please provide details of the issue in your email. Thank you!

As far as I know
Beta tester status is valid for one year only and it should be renewed each year. But still don't know what will be the status of your assignments.

Thanks Laura,
I finished testing RL by U of Alberta. So I do not need the access to the old courses any more. It would be nice, however, to maintain Tester status for longer period than a year.
Thanks,
George

There are some odd changes going on in the beta test system. In the past all the courses tested would show up under "purchases" and could be accessed and completed (!) even after the testing time was over. Not anymore it seems. Sad, especially since there were no notifications or warnings of changes either before nor after the changes were made. I had a few courses I was still wanting to finish "some time" and now can't.
