Know what you are getting

Some Frequently Asked Questions
Do I pay more if I find a course via Courseroot?
+
No. As a matter of fact, sometimes you will even be provided a discount on courses because you are a referral of us.
What do I get when I buy a course?
+
This really depends on which course you buy and at which platform. We try to provide as much detailed information on the courses such as their price, the quality of the certificate, the level of difficulty, and what you will get, but you should always take a good look at the course page on the original platform to check this.

+
Courseroot is a platform to aims to help people find the right course for whatever it is they want to achieve. Whether you are looking for a programming tutorial to just developer your expertise or for an extensive ux design course with a high-quality certificate for your cv, we will help you find it.
What is the 50% rule?
+
The internet has made access to educational resources much and much better. With a smartphone or a laptop, you now get to study anything you want and develop your skills. However, for many children and adults in this world, this access has not been provided yet, or they do not get the chance to even consider studying because they are lacking basic needs such as proper nutrition and drinking water. Our mission with the 50% rule is to distribute some of this opportunity to these people by taking half of our profits and donating it to a charitable cause that has set out to help these less fortunate people and allow them to dream of a brighter future.
What characteristics can I use to filter through courses?
+
