COURSERA is an American Massive Open Online Course platform founded by Stanford University Professors. COURSERA works with universities and other organizations to offer online courses, certifications, and degrees in a variety of subjects. In 2021 it was estimated that about 150 universities offered more than 4,000 courses through COURSERA. The courses last approximately four to twelve weeks, with one to two hours of video lectures a week. These courses provide quizzes, weekly exercises, peer-graded and reviewed assignments, an optional Honors assignment, and sometimes a final project or exam to complete the course.
Our institution has a great privilege to get collaborated with COURSERA by taking a membership during the pandemic situation. The students along with faculty enrolled in several courses and received the certificates from top universities like Illinois, Deakin University, and University of Leeds etc. at free of cost. All students were encouraged to take at least Two courses of their interest. Some of the courses were recommended to the students as part of their syllabus.
