Will the assignment be shown if I don't purchase the course?

Hi guys,

Currently I’m taking “Dinosaur Paleontology” course for free,

I tend to buy the course after being sure that I am interested in it and am able to finish it.

Now I just finished my second week and it shows that there’s 5 assignments due this week.

(as below pic)

 

I found these text when I was on Coursera APP (on the phone), but the reminding text does not show up on my computer. 

I wonder is it correct that if I don’t buy the course then I would not know whether there’s assignment to do or not?

And if I do buy the course after finishing the half of this course, will those assignments still be expired and causes the problem of getting the certificate?

 

I’m kinda confused and worried. Please let me know if anyone has an answer for me.

Thank you.

You're welcome!

No, there are no assignments or quizzes that you can not do without buying. When you are enrolled in the "Full Course, No Certificate" mode, it means every item is available to you. There are no hidden assignments or quizzes. Everything is available to you even though you have not paid. Regarding the message, maybe it refers to the upcoming weeks, too. Or it could be simply an error. In any case, as I mentioned earlier, there is nothing here to be worried about. But, if you like more assistance, feel free to contact the support team here:

Hi @Elsie YC,

I think you have enrolled in the free option: Full Course, No Certificate

This option allows you to complete all the items, including the graded assignments. So don't worry about not being able to complete it. This message should be available on your Grades page even when you open the course in a browser. The due dates are shown there, too. Besides, the due dates are flexible and resettable. You can reset them if you fall behind.

Feel free to complete the course at your own pace and purchase a certificate whenever you like. Your progress will be saved.

Hope this helps.

P.S. in case you don't know how to upgrade, please visit this Help Article.

@Maryam Thanks for sharing.

There might be some misunderstanding here, 
I want to know whether there are assignments that I couldn’t do without buying the course. I know I can still do the quiz.

Because of the text shown on my APP, it says that there are 5 assignments due this week, which I cannot find them during taking the course,    And now I’m ahead of the course schedule, I’m sure it’s not talking about quiz deadline. 

That’s why I’m confused whether there’s assignments that I couldn’t do without paying or it’s just an error on my APP? 

You're welcome!
