Coursera: The Platform

Coursera’s Statements of Accomplishment disappear from Accomplishments page

Anyone else have an Accomplishments page on Coursera that now looks like this?:

The Accomplishments page on the Coursera platform has been updated. In the above screenshot taken from my own course pages (full name redacted), there is a section for Verified Certificates, but none for Statements of Accomplishment.

I went to the help page suggested by Coursera, but it hasn’t been updated to reflect what’s going on here (though I did all the things suggested there, to no avail). I’ve also submitted a help request, but I’m curious to know whether other people are having this issue and when it first popped up.

Of note, the only reason I went to my Accomplishments page today was because I’d received an email from Coursera telling me I’d received a new Statement of Accomplishment for Introduction to Forensic Science from Nanyang Technological University (which I highly recommend, by the way; the lectures take up more time per week than in most Coursera courses, but I think that’s a plus, and the case studies made the course extremely engaging). So I doubt this is an underhanded attempt by Coursera to make Statements of Accomplishment unavailable — and if it is, it’s very poorly executed.

Update: Here’s the note I got back from Coursera:
