coursera-dl 3.1.1

Download class videos and resources

A python package for archiving content from (videos, lecture notes, …) for offline reference. Originally forked from [][] but significantly cleaned up and enhanced.

Some people have asked if they could donate something. If you wish you can do so here:



Make sure you have installed [Python][] 2.7 and [pip][].

Then simply run: pip install coursera-dl

This will create a coursera-dl script in /usr/local/bin (linux), c:\Python2.7\Scripts (windows), or /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin (OSX).

Note exact paths may vary depending on your system.

(to upgrade use pip install –upgrade)


See: coursera-dl -h

Example usage:

<pre> coursera-dl -u myusername -p mypassword -d /my/coursera/courses/ algo-2012-001 ml-2012-002 </pre>

Note: you can also specify your login and password in .netrc file in your home directory. Just add this line to ~/.netrc <pre> machine coursera-dl login myusername password mypassword </pre>

Now you can use coursera-dl like this:

<pre> coursera-dl -d /my/coursera/courses/ algo-2012-001 ml-2012-002 </pre>

Note: ensure you have accepted the honor code of the class before using this script (happens the very first time you go to the class page).
