Coursera was founded in 2012 by two Stanford computer science professors with a vision to provide anyone, anywhere with access to the world’s best education. Professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng put their courses online for anyone to take— and taught more learners in a few months than they could over an entire lifetime in the classroom. Today, Coursera has expanded to reach more than 49 million people and 2,300 businesses around the world. On Coursera you can find online courses, Specializations, certificates and degrees from 200 world-class universities and companies, including: Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Google, IBM, and more.
Coursera provides universal access to the world’s best education, partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online.
We envision a world where anyone, anywhere can transform their life by accessing the world’s best learning experience.
