Customize your interests

You can now customize your interests, to tell us what subjects you’re interested in and see suggested courses on your interests page. Here’s how it works:



Find the right course by filtering with topics

On some of our category pages, you’ll now see topics. These help you filter courses within a category even further, so it’s easier to find the exact subject you’re looking for.



Celebrate your achievements with new celebration steps

We’ve introduced a new step at the end of each week of your courses. This new step is a celebration of the hard work you’ve done that week and makes it easier for you to share your achievement on social networks.
