The “NUSCT Coursera for Campus”, has enrolled 297 learners from its universities since the Network of Universities of Small Countries and Territories (NUSCT) adhered to the initiative in June, 2020. The bulk of registrations took place in September, coinciding with the provider’s decision to extend the registration deadline to the end of that month.
The majority of the learners, who were first introduced to the Coursera educational platform through this initiative, took training in computer science, finance, psychology, law and data management. In total, 314 teaching hours were recorded and participants attended up to 407 classes, giving an average course rating of 4,8/5.
The “Coursera for Campus” initiative was launched to assist universities in mitigating the instruction disruption caused by the health crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic by offering almost 4,000 online courses in 400 different areas, with free Certificates for learners who successfully completed the courses in two months, and no later than the end of December, 2020.
