Hi @SHM,

Welcome! I think you are referring to the Social Media Marketing Specialization. No matter what your course is, there is always a syllabus section on the home page of each course. It provides a brief summary of the items in each week if you click "See All". For example, this is the first course.




However, since you're looking for more in-depth information, I'd suggest that you enroll in the audit mode of Course 1. It allows you to look through the items for free.

✔To find out about the toolkits, for example, read this section: https://www.coursera.org/learn/what-is-social/supplement/hHAIw/social-marketing-toolkits

✔Click the Grades tab on the left-hand menu to find out how many assignments you're required to do.

✔On the home page, it's stated that English, Arabic, and Japanese subtitles are available.

✔Watching the videos is not mandatory, but you will definitely need to watch them to learn the topic better. Alternatively, you can read the transcripts.

Then, if this is the right course/Specialization for you and you'd like to get a Certificate, you can either click "Upgrade to submit" on the quiz pages or "Upgrade now for full access" on the course pages. The on-screen instructions will tell you what to do next.

Hope this helps.

Oooooh, 😕 I didn't know about audit mode. I spend my trail to see in-depth info for UX courses. I'm crying now.
Please what are the conditions for audit mode?

I know to use syllabus but for example:

Course1 - What is Social?
Additional MOOC 1 faculty include: * Judy Ungar Franks (President, The Marketing Democracy, Ltd. & Lecturer, Medill Integrated Marketing Communications, Northwestern)

That is not in syllabus. (?)
Everyone can audit a course. Many courses offer this option. It enables you to access the course materials. But, it is not possible to submit the graded items. For more information, please take a look at this Help Article:
https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/209818613-Enrollment-options

By Syllabus, I mean this tab on the home page (which is accessible even before enrolling in the course):



It takes you to the section that I shared on my first post.

How long Audit mode will last?
Please explain me more about Signature Track in MOOC.
How long Audit mode will last?
As far as I know, there is no limitation in terms of time.

Please explain me more about Signature Track in MOOC.

"Signature Track" was a common term on Coursera's old platform. It's not used these days. Are you referring to the requirements for getting a Course Certificate?

No, I am not getting a Course Certificate now.

I'm in audit mode and it is written:
Deadline: You must submit this week's assignments by September 2

What exactly does that mean for Audit mode?
The due dates are suggested deadlines. If you were enrolled in the paying mode, you would need to consider them.
Now that you are simply auditing the course, you can ignore those dates especially because the graded items are actually locked. In other words, you cannot submit them. So the dates are not important. I hope this helps.

So, I could move from audit mode to free trial mode at first?
Please open a quiz page and click the blue Upgrade button.




After clicking that button, it should proivde a blue "Start Free Trial" button. I tested it and was able to see the free trial option. You can test it to see if it allows you to start a free trial.
