In some Coursera courses, you'll be able to write and execute code on the Coursera website without having to download or switch between any extra tools.
In-browser coding may show up in readings, videos, or assignments. Make sure you understand the instructions before you start working.
To use in-browser coding:
- Click inside the white box with practice code in it.
- Type your code.
- Click Run.
- Check the message underneath the white box for details about your code.
If you see an "Error" message on a red background, check the message for details about what didn't work. You can try again by typing new code in the white box and clicking Run.
If you have questions or need more help with an in-browser coding prompt, try asking in the course's forums.
