Today we are honored to announce that we have reached the triple milestone: 100+ institutional partners offering 500+ courses to 5 million+ students on Coursera’s platform.
In celebration of the triple milestone, we’ve created an infographic that highlights the extraordinary growth of Coursera and our community. Thank you to everyone who has joined us along the way, and welcome to all those who are joining us for the first time.
Coursera Co-Founder Andrew Ng shared his reflections on this exciting day:
“Two years ago, Coursera was still a budding idea. My team comprising four Stanford students and me had just launched our first two courses, each of which eventually reached over 100,000 students, thus helping kick off the MOOC movement. When we first put these courses online, we could not have envisioned the growth and community response that we witness today, among universities, professors, and students from every corner of the globe.”
Adding to this, Co-Founder Daphne Koller expressed:
“We are privileged to host this vast breadth of amazing courses across a broad range of disciplines from many of the world’s leading institutions. It is remarkable that such a powerful network has developed just 18 months since the official launch of our company. With so many countries, languages, and educational backgrounds represented, we are proud to be a part of a movement promoting lifelong education for everyone.”
