Now any university, even those outside of Coursera’s partner ecosystem, can use the content on Coursera to deliver job-relevant, multi-disciplinary online learning to its learners.
Coursera, the world’s leading online learning platform, has announced Coursera for Campus, a new offering designed to help universities around the world respond to the unprecedented challenges posed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Now any university, even those outside of Coursera’s partner ecosystem, can use the content on Coursera to deliver job-relevant, multi-disciplinary online learning to its learners.
Universities will have access to more than 3,600 high-quality courses that they can use to integrate into their curricula, offer credit-eligible and supplemental learning to their current students, and deliver lifelong learning to their alumni, faculty, and staff. Universities will also be able to use Coursera’s world-class tools to author content and assessments, Coursera Labs for hands-on projects, and Coursera’s learning analytics to improve and track learner outcomes.
Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera, said, “Hundreds of millions of job seekers will enter the workforce in the coming years, but higher education in many countries finds it difficult to deliver the skills students need in the age of AI and automation.”
“Coursera for Campus gives universities the ability to quickly respond to the demands of a rapidly changing economy. With access to content from 200 of the world’s top universities and industry educators, higher education institutions can easily enhance their existing curricula with critical digital skills and author online courses to keep pace with what employers need,” he further stated.
Coursera for Campus has been launched after extensive pilots in more than 20 top university campuses around the world. Initial pilot partners include Duke University, University of Illinois, and Manipal Academy of Higher Education, who have been using the offering to serve their on-campus students, faculty, and staff.
