I use Coursera a lot to learn about new things and to keep updating myself. When I’m learning at night, I’ll enable the Dark Mode on the Coursera app on my iPhone. When I use my PC, I’ll use the Turn Off the Lights extension to get the dark theme. With the Dark Mode, the blue light emission will be reduced, and you won’t get eye soreness.
