Mr. Raghav do you think completing the course at Coursera without certificate, the students can still add it in the resume they have?
From the quality of learning & from skill building prospectus if the students complete 90-95% of Coursera course, They can still learn what the course teach them. But if they put it in CV & when I look at CV, they are usually substantiated by some kind of proof and the purpose of CV is to get you in Interview so CV has to talk itself, You can demonstrate your skill in your interview and purpose purpose of CV is to get you in Interview and I think for that purpose the certificate is helpful.

Yes, you can still add courses without certificate to your resume, however don't forget to mention that they have been done online. The employers can test the authenticity/ credibilty of your claim of having done the course through some questions in the interview. So be prepared for that!
