This is is fine, but after the weekly review, do we get to complete the class "for real", delving into the content, learning the material, and redoing any low grades for the assignments? The next obvious question is, if so, do we receive a complementary certificate for the course for our efforts?

Aha! Exactly the information for which I was looking--thanks @csand_ --but in the "Common Room." :-)
"As It Should Be" (and apparently is):
- No certificate for one week of pre-production and untested work (which would ultimately devalue the certification). BUT:
- Be granted the option to continue, successfully complete "live" course, and be given a legitimately-earned complimentary certificate.
... So I will not worry about nailing all of the grades in one week. :-)
@TerryThere are free courses, but no free certificates. I have heard that some beta testers get their certificates for the courses they get access to for testing, but instead complete the course. While the course is not live yet, there is no grading of quizzes or assignments, so everyone passes and I was told they got a free certificate...
I am a beta tester and free certificates are given to those beta testers that complete the course they have accepted to beta test, but they must fulfill all the requirements that any other student would, that is, they must complete all the required quizzes and assignments in order to get the certificate.
You normally have a week to beta test whatever you can from the course (in rare occasions beta testers have two weeks to do so), but they still keep access once the course opens to the public and are given a few months to complete the course and get the certificate if they want to.
Hope that helps,
