Coursera will give college students free access to its entire catalogue of courses as a response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Coursera, a leading online learning platform and one of the pioneers of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) made an announcement that college and university students can learn and earn certificates on Coursera for free in any of its thousands of courses.
Current undergraduate, graduate, or recently graduated students are eligible for the offer.
There is no limit on how many courses a student can take. Coursera offers over 3,800 courses, 150 Guided Projects, 400 Specializations, and 11 Professional Certificates.
Students satisfactorily finishing courses or programs will receive certifications of completion – also for free – making it possible for the course to count for credit at their home colleges or universities.
Starting today and lasting until June 31, college and university students – from two-year and four-year schools around the world can sign up – no credit card required. Once enrolled, students have until September 30, 2020, to complete the courses or programs.
After September 30, students will continue to have free access to Guided Projects, hands-on learning experiences that develop job-relevant skills like data analysis, app development, and social media marketing.
