Coursera plans to expand in the Indian market

Coursera is a for-profit educational technology company founded by computer science professors Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller from Stanford University

Coursera, an online education firm has announced its expansion plans for the Indian market as they consider India as one of its top five revenue generators, says a PTI report.

As a part of its expansion plans, the firm has partnered with Indian School of Business (ISB).

"We are very excited about the opportunities here. India is our second largest userbase already with 800,000 students registered. It is also one of the top five countries in terms of revenue generated for Coursera," Richard C Levin, CEO, Coursera told PTI.

“India's relative position is likely to improve over time, given the high value Indian employers place on the potential of massive open online courses (MOOCs) for developing skills relevant for employees,” added Levin.

Coursera is a for-profit educational technology company founded by computer science professors Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller from Stanford University. It offers massive open online courses (MOOCs) in physics, engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, socialsciences, mathematics, business, computer science, and other subjects.

Levin also said that we are educating companies here on the benefits of our model and they have been very receptive. They are interested in using our model for their own employees since it’s an alternate way of taking courses.
