What happened to the advanced search options:
I think that as I’m trying to advance the world goes faster than me :D
Hello @EfrainMOOC, these advanced search options are not offered by Coursera and, as far as I know, never have been (or at least not in the last few years).
If you can provide more information about when/how you used them, please let me know.
Hi @EfrainMOOC. I’m also curious to know If you saw those search options on Coursera. I’ve never seen them either.
@Jose A & @Maryam they certainly were available as I used them all the time. You had to conduct the search a certain way though.
This was very helpful to keep an eye on the most recently launched courses or those that were being updated, and also those that were most highly regarded by others.
I see what you mean. It seems, this kind of ranking is someway split into two different search options:
While the first one has a certain ranking but allows no granular control of the Inherent-features, the problem of the second is that it actually lacks the Ranking-features of the first one -- likely because a Keyword search usually displays extraneous results (which by the way is a good thing) so there can’t be a consistent ranking system.
Throwing an opinion, I agree this is someway messy. However, you found the worst person to disagree on mess (and on ranking), so I the best I can say is
Best..# Happy Learning
PS - You can always propose a clear Feature Suggestion in the Suggestion forum. Bye
Thanks for the further explanation about the search features that were available to you. As I think they were never available to me, I'm guessing maybe those extra filters/options were available to a certain percentage of the user base as a test. I agree with you that having such extra filters can be really helpful.
