An honors student is a student recognized for achieving high grades or high marks in their course work.
Coursera has rolled out an Honors track (Thanks for the tip Hyun!) for certain courses. These courses will include additional videos and assignments, which are optional to those who just want a regular certificate. Learners who want to obtain a certificate “with honors” will need to fulfill all requirements of the regular certificate, and complete the previously-mentioned additional lessons and assignments.
After further digging by Class Central, we have found out that there are currently five courses eligible for the Honors Track.
