Hi I am very interested in starting my first coursera certificate; Foundations of Teaching for Learning: Being a Teacher but apart from the quizzes I do not see what I have to submit to qualify for a certificate. Can someone explain where that can be found for this but also other courses.

Thanks a million

No @Gilly , you can see everything, if the course has any locked components then you will be able to see that they are there but you will not be able to open and see what questions are inside and attempt them. In this case you need to make payment and then only you will be able to see what lies inside and attempt it.

However many courses do not have any locked components, so all the content is available to every learner (both who paid and taking it free), you can attempt all of them and get grades as well.

But if you want to get certificate also, then you have to pay.

When? You can pay right in the beginning or anytime thereafter or even after completing the course. For more details read the article (I have shared link above).

@Gilly once you enrol in a course you need to purchase the certificate. For more information please check this article. What all quizzes and assignments needed for earning a certificate will be visible to you as graded components. In some courses, all the material including quizzes and assignments are available to all learners, in other courses some components are locked (but visible) and learner need to avail purchase certificate option to unlock and attempt them.
