Preguntas Frecuentes

  • Una vez que te inscribes para obtener un Certificado, tendrás acceso a todos los videos, cuestionarios y tareas de programación (si corresponde). Las tareas calificadas por compañeros solo pueden enviarse y revisarse una vez que haya comenzado tu sesión. Si eliges explorar el curso sin comprarlo, es posible que no puedas acceder a determinadas tareas.

  • Cuando compras un Certificado, obtienes acceso a todos los materiales del curso, incluidas las tareas calificadas.
