Coursera for Campus launched to help Universities leap into digital world
NEW DELHI, OCTOBER 03: Coursera has announced the launch of Coursera for Campus — a new offering designed to help universities around the world respond to the new challenges posed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Now any university — even those outside of Coursera’s partner ecosystem — can use 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.
Coursera’s 2019 Global Skills Index found that two-thirds of the world’s population is falling behind in critical skills. Higher education globally is gearing up to address this crisis, but many universities are constrained by the capacity of their on-campus programs and the challenge of recruiting expert faculty required to launch new programs.
“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,” said Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera.
