About Coursera

Coursera is an online learning platform, founded in 2012. Since then, Coursera has attracted over 25 million learners worldwide and offered more than two thousand online courses.

The University of Leeds has recently entered into a partnership with Coursera, and over the coming year we will be exploring how we can use the platform to launch a range of credit bearing online courses as well as courses designed for professionals.

With a huge international audience and an established worldwide reputation, it is the ideal platform if your objective is to reach global professional audiences or niche markets of significant size.
