Coursera’s gov and nonprofits arm to ‘close skills gap’- by PIE

Coursera, the US-based online training platform, has announced it is launching a new arm, Coursera for Governments & Nonprofits. Through the new division, the two groups of stakeholders will work directly with Coursera to develop study programmes for targeted groups of learners, such as their staff. “We have developed expertise in supporting blended learning models” They will then offer training on a subsidised basis. Some partners will subsidise the cost of learning completely, giving learners free access to courses, while others will cost-share with course participants or establish reimbursement schemes to incentivise learners to complete the course. https://thepienews.com/news/coursera-for-governments-nonprofits-launches/
