Coursera offers free online courses to universities worldwide during coronavirus pandemic
Monday, March 23, 2020
Coursera, which offers a broad array of online courses, will make its content free to universities in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Any university worldwide is eligible, according to Coursera Chief Enterprise Officer Leah Belsky, but some priority may be given to those most impacted by coronavirus.
Universities can sign up through an online portal and will have free access through July 31, 2020. After that date, Coursera says extensions of the free service will be available depending on risk assessments. Students who enroll in individual classes before July 31 will have access to that content through September of this year.
