On March 28, 2016, Coursera passed an exciting milestone – we now have over 1000 courses active and open for enrollment on our platform!
To put this number in context – we offered fewer than 150 courses at the end of 2013, and only 260 in April 2015. We owe this incredible growth to:
- Our 140+ global partners, who’ve worked with us over the past year to create hundreds of courses in new areas like personal development, language learning, and arts and humanities – in addition to deepening their content offerings in business, computer science, and data science – and whose commitment to pedagogical innovation has led to new concepts such as the 12 project-based courses that we launched in February 2016
- Our evolving learning experience, which we’ve updated to support running course sessions much more frequently, so that most courses now always have a session open for enrollment
- Our learners, whose diverse interests and goals have continually pushed Coursera and our partners to expand not only our content catalog and course availability, but also our vision for the future of online learning and the role that we can play in transforming lives
We are grateful to everyone who’s been with us on this journey, and we look forward to bringing you even more great courses, Specializations, and other transformative learning experiences in the coming year!
