Universities are already using Coursera to support online learning

“Coursera for Campus helped Duke Kunshan University make a quick online pivot when the campus was closed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Faculty benefited from access to a high-quality library of courseware from hundreds of Coursera partners. Students dived right into learning new skills on their own – some finishing four courses in just the first few days.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Chevron Right
What is the Coursera Campus Response Initiative?

We will provide every university in the world impacted by COVID-19 with free access to our course catalogue through our Coursera Campus Response Initiative. Universities can sign up to provide their enrolled students with access to more than 3,800 courses and 400 Specializations from Coursera’s university and industry partners. These institutions will have access until July 31, 2020, after which we plan to provide month-to-month extensions depending on prevailing risk assessments. Students who enroll on or before July 31 will continue to have access until Sept. 30, 2020.

Chevron Right
Who is eligible to sign up for this program?

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.  It is not designed for individual use and therefore is not available for license by individual students. If your university has been impacted by coronavirus, please ask your university faculty and administration to submit their information on the website.

Chevron Right
What can I do if I am a student?

University and college students can learn for free on Coursera by signing up with a verified college or university email address and enrolling in courses by July 31, 2020. Students can earn certificates for courses and Specializations they are enrolled in through September 30, 2020, for free.

Chevron Right
What is available to current Coursera university partners?

The Coursera catalog of courses, including content from other university and industry partners, is available free to all currently enrolled students. In addition, university partners can get access to enterprise-level admin tools and are eligible for single sign-on integrations.

 

For university partners, we are offering licenses to all currently enrolled students through July 31, 2020.  Learners will have access to their courses through September 30, 2020. Please reach out to your University Partner Manager for more information.

Chevron Right
What is available to non-partners?

For non-partners, we are offering licenses to up to 5,000 currently enrolled students through July 31, 2020. Learners will have access to their courses through September 30, 2020. This free version does not include private authoring, single sign-on, custom curriculum consulting, dedicated customer success support or new academic integrity features.

Chevron Right
When will my university have access?

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.

Chevron Right
Why is Coursera launching the Coursera Campus Response Initiative?

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.

Chevron Right
What if I am an existing customer?

Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager to learn more.

Chevron Right
When does the initiative end?

Our current end date for the response initiative is July 31, 2020. We will be monitoring the situation and may extend if necessary. Students will have access to their courses through September 30, 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.  Given that this offering is free and the coronavirus situation is evolving, we reserve the right to end the initiative earlier at our discretion.

Chevron Right
Are there any international restrictions?

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.
