Education In The Times Of COVID-19
“The spread of COVID-19 has forced many educational institutions across the globe to close campuses.

India has over 37 million students enrolled in higher education. An interruption in the delivery of education could cause long term disruption. The pandemic requires universities to rapidly offer online learning to their students. Fortunately, technology and content are available to help universities transition online quickly and with high quality,” says Raghav Gupta, Managing Director (India and APAC), Coursera.

Gupta continues to inform how Coursera is providing universities and colleges access to its course catalog through the Coursera for Campus platform at no cost. Universities and colleges can sign up to provide their enrolled students with access to more than 3,800 courses and 400 specialisations. These institutions will have access until July 31, 2020, after which the organisation plans to provide month-to-month extensions depending on prevailing risk assessments.
