常见问题

  • Once you enroll for a Certificate, you’ll have access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (if applicable). Peer review assignments can only be submitted and reviewed once your session has begun. If you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments.

  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • We will use short videos, readings, quizzes, reflection questions, and forums to digest, retain, and act on what you will learn. Most importantly, this course offers 3 different tracks from which learners can choose:

    Audit Track: You will have access to all the videos, readings, reflection questions and discussion forums. This will allow you to master basic course concepts. Passing the graded quizzes is not required.

    Certificate Track: In addition to the learning elements in the audit track, you will need to pass the graded quizzes in order to earn the certificate. The quizzes will allow you to test your mastery and understanding of the course knowledge.

    Honors Track with Recognition Certificate: In addition to everything in the Certificate track, there are additional readings and three small peer-reviewed projects. In these projects you will be asked to:

    1.Describe a business in renewable energy or green building

    2.Identify 2-3 problems to solve in these sectors

    3. Summarize your new business using the 1-page template

  • No. Completion of a Coursera course does not earn you academic credit from Duke; therefore, Duke is not able to provide you with a university transcript. However, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile.
