I have registered for one of the online courses in coursera.org. Now when the course gets completed , there will be around 60 or more pdf slides and corresponding video lectures. If I want to download the pdfs etc , then what is the most efficient way to do it. When I tried downloading using IDM (internet download manager) grabber it failed. Any help is appreciated.

You can use the "Down Them All" extension available for Firefox. I use it too - saves a lot of time.

Let me try it. Thank you. Is there any similar thing for Chrome. – dexterdev Feb 3 '14 at 15:39

Once a course has finished you may still be able to review all the videos and slides, depending on the course.

There is a Python package for downloading resources from Coursera.

Thanks , let me check it. But I haven't installed python in my system. Can I use this package or similar with an executable type file. – dexterdev Feb 4 '14 at 5:38
