Coursera Registration

The corresponding Coursera course information is also included with the Illinois courses on the registration information sheet. As long as you have completed your Onboarding course in Coursera, which verifies your Coursera account information, you will automatically be enrolled in the Coursera courses at the start of each eight-week session.

Students are welcome to work ahead and begin a Coursera course before the start of the Illinois portion. Please remember that you will need to enroll in the course, pay the $79 enrollment fee for each course, and complete the course(s) for a verified certificate.

Zoom Pro Account

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a cloud-based web conferencing tool. It unifies video conferencing, online meetings, and group messaging into a single platform. With Zoom, you will be able to video chat, talk, and text chat with your instructors and peers.

How does Zoom work in the iMBA?

The iMBA courses are highly interactive and engaging on a weekly basis. As a student, you will be participating in weekly live video sessions, office hours, and group work as part of your learning experience. Depending on how the live event is designed in each iMBA course, you will have the opportunity to interact with your instructors, teaching assistants, and classmates in different ways as part of a virtual classroom.

Zoom is where you will participate in live instruction and engage with faculty/TAs by asking questions in real time.

How can I set up a Zoom account?

Please note: You may need to wait 2-3 days after claiming your NetID before you are able to successfully set up your Zoom account.

The authentication system will use the Illinois Single-Sign On (SSO) system – the same login process with your Illinois netID that you use for Compass2g, the library and other campus resources. From this point forward you will need to use your Illinois login credentials to gain access to the Zoom Pro features.
