Coursera was founded in 2012 by two Stanford Computer Science professors who wanted to share their knowledge and skills with the world. 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 have in an entire lifetime in the classroom.
Since then, we’ve built a platform where anyone, anywhere can learn and earn credentials from the world’s top universities and education providers.
@Coursera today (1 May) launched its “Coursera Employee Resilience Initiative” to give its enterprise customers and all their employees free access to a curated set of 30+ courses, including some of its highest demand courses during these particularly stressful times.

Since we launched the Coronavirus Response Initiative on March 12, more than 2,600 colleges and universities around the world have activated Coursera for Campus programs to take learning online and minimize student disruption. We’re humbled by the global response and are working hard to be even more useful to universities who need to move online quickly.
