A few weeks ago we had a company-wide Make-a-Thon. What happens when you give a bunch of Coursera employees free reign to create something inspired by their daily work? A music video is born.
As an ode to more than 5.6 million Courserians around the world, we poured our hearts (and musical abilities) into this video of pop star Katy Perry’s new song, “Birthday.”
The video was written, directed, edited, and produced by Coursera employees (with the help of some AMAZING Courserians who submitted their dancing videos from countries like Brazil, Spain, China, Bangladesh, UK and US)!
The video offers a sneak peek behind the scenes here at Coursera. We have a new office space and our team of passionate individuals is devoted to having fun while supporting our mission – to change the world by helping to advance worldwide education.
2013 has been an incredible year for us at Coursera, and we wanted to share our thanks with you. It’s time to celebrate… and get funky. Feel free to share the fun and as always, learn, learn, learn!
