What is Coursera?
We are a social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities (refer to illustration) in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.Wake-up world. Learning just got a whole heck of a lot easier. Join 1,136,787+ Courserians here. By the time you visit the site, notice the growth in Courserians.
Through this, we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
Note: I've already signed up for a course starting January 2013.
