Mentors are learners who help others work through courses they have already completed. Not all courses have mentors.
Mentors don't work for Coursera. They can't edit course materials, and they can't change your grades.
Examples of Mentor Responsibilities
- Answering learner questions in the discussion forums
- Posting new threads to spark discussion
- Providing feedback to the course staff
Becoming a Mentor
Mentors are selected and managed by the course instructor and staff. Mentors are invited to take a free short training course, which introduces tools available to Mentors as well as best practices.
If you're already a Mentor and you're having a problem or you have questions, please check your Mentor training materials or contact the person who invited you to be a Mentor.
