Coursera was founded in 2012 by two Stanford Computer Science professors who wanted to share their knowledge and skills with the world. Professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng put their courses online for anyone to take – and taught more learners in a few months than they could have in an entire lifetime in the classroom.


  • We envision a world where anyone, anywhere can transform their life by accessing the world’s best learning experience. 
  • Every course on Coursera is taught by top instructors from the world’s best universities and educational institutions. 
  • If you want to master a specific career skill, consider joining a Specialization. You’ll complete a series of rigorous courses, tackle hands-on projects based on real business challenges, and earn a Specialization Certificate to share with your professional network and potential employers. 
  • Real career transformation sometimes requires a university-recognized degree. Coursera believes that transformation should be accessible to everyone,
