Downdetector – a popular service that gives information about live outages – also conveys that Coursera is indeed going through a glitch in various regions.

This outage is a result of ongoing server maintenance being conducted by the Coursera team. While it can be frustrating to encounter such downtime, it’s important to understand that it is temporary and the service will be back.

Any official word on the matter? Negative, as yet. We’re yet to locate a word from the official service channels or their social media handles.

Rest assured, we’re keeping tabs on all related developments and will update this page with relevant info as and when we come across any.
