Coursera's Update Will Migrate Hundreds of Courses to a New Platform

OUT WITH THE OLD: Coursera is planning to terminate access to its old platform on June 30, which will remove access to more than 450 courses hosted there. The majority of the MOOCs will transfer to the new platform, which Coursera began building in 2014 and which accommodates self-paced courses. The company writes that certificates from old courses will not disappear so long as participants do not unenroll.

The MOOC provider offered this tip on differentiating between platforms: "If you aren’t sure which platform a course is on currently, navigate to the course and check the URL in the browser bar—courses on the old platform have URLs that begin with class.coursera.org (rather than then new platform, which uses the URL coursera.org/learn.)"

Class Central compiled a full list of the 450 plus moving, possibly disappearing, courses and highlighted some of the notable ones
