This product is designed to be used by university faculty and administrators who need to move their curriculum online and serve many students, or an entire campus.

Our goal is to bring each instance of Coursera for Campus in the Cousera Campus Response Initiative live as quickly as possible. Depending on the volume of requests, we will build a prioritization queue that accounts for the level of impact the organization is feeling because of the virus.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to spread around the world, compelling many universities in impacted regions to discourage students from coming to campus while suspending face-to-face seminars. As a global learning platform and community of the best universities in the world, we have an opportunity to offer assistance to our fellow educators staring at the prospect of closing their campuses and searching for ways to mitigate the impact on their students. This initiative helps us deliver on our mission and promise to help learners everywhere get access to the world’s best education, particularly in the face of a global crisis.
Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager to learn more.
The Campus Response Initiative ends September 30, 2020, with new university sign-ups ending on September 25, 2020. The university can decide to renew all, or a percentage of licenses to continue to use Coursera for Campus after the free contract end date. We reserve the right to end the initiative earlier at our discretion.
We value our global community immensely and we deeply regret the need to withhold services from anyone in order to remain in compliance with US law. Our team is continually exploring options to expand access and we hope one day to offer unrestricted access throughout the world. For more information, go here.
