MongoDB course joined late


I have joined mongodb course M001 little late which started earlier this week, I have received an email which says the course has weekly deadlines for assignments and each week I’l receive check-in email and so on. Where can I find all this because I have joined late? I have not received an email as well.


Please check our forum
Update from Shubham Ranjan,Curriculum Support Engineer

In order to make MongoDB University curriculum more accessible we have made several major updates to all of our courses:

  1. We’ve removed unlockable chapters. You’ll now have access to the entirety of a course’s curriculum from the moment you enroll.
  2. Chapters no longer have weekly deadlines. The removal of chapter deadlines enhances your ability as a user to learn at your own pace.
  3. You’ll now have two months to complete a course before progress is lost.

This is applicable for all the future offerings as well as all the offerings which began in March

I don’t think I have fully understood your clarification Ramachandra, but am glad there are no weekly assignments and I have two months time to finish this course. Eitherways, email instructions seems outdated.

Hi @Shravan,

Thanks for surfacing this. I will check with the team and see if we need to update the instructions in the e-mail.

Just for clarification - There are no weekly deadlines for the assignment anymore. You could check the end date on the Course Overview page or on the Chapters page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
