By mapping Coursera content to skills employers valued, NKU accomplishes several important goals, including:

  • Deepens its continuing education efforts to reach learners who don’t need a formal degree to get crucial job-relevant training
  • Augments micro-credential program to make learners more attractive to local employers
  • Provides additional learning and training opportunities to alumni and community members
