Ratings and Reviews
I was able to download the app, create an account, find and enroll in a course, and watch the introductory video within a matter of minutes. There appears to be a large number of available courses covering a wide range of topics. Each course has a syllabus as well as detailed descriptions of the parting knowledge one will have acquired upon completion. Instructors will grade your submissions through the class, yielding a final grade. There’s even an option to receive an official certificate of completion. I’ll hold off on that prior to more research—it costs $99. Curiously, the few courses I looked at were offered through what one could call “3rd party affiliate universities”. Perhaps I didn’t read the full app description but I was under the impression these would be actual Harvard courses. Nevertheless, so far so good and I am looking forward to enjoying the learning process. Highly recommended.
Before you spend time adding additional features, u need to make sure the basic features exist for the software u have developed. In this case, the ability to know where you left off in a video lecture. It is crucial. Coursera does a great job of highlighting where u are in the course although their last update was bizarre UX wise. Edx has a much nicer design but is missing some basics which mean people end up using the desktop version. I dont know about everyone else but Im not going to download the videos, so while the latest update is great for those that are, it would be great if the next feature to focus on is letting users know (via bookmark) where they are in the course. Also "last accessed" is not the same thing and should be an additional feature. I would also like to be able to hide or remove archived classes from my course list using some kind of filtering. But def not as important as basic bookmarking.
Could Be Much Better
Visually, the app could use a lot of work. This app is good at just looking at courses and reviewing materials but when it comes to watching lectures, there’s several issues. On my device, the whole screen is not used for playback and there are horrendous white AND black borders. Also, you can’t watch a video for more than 3 seconds without the play/pause button, scrubbing, and volume buttons popping up blocking content. The site is much better at full screen and I will be sticking with that.
Also, the iPad version doesn’t support split screen unless you use the site so again, site wins. A mobile app should have utility and it doesn’t offer anything more than the site does. In fact, it offers way less (besides downloading videos which again, don’t do any good). No need for an app if that’s the case.
