Coursera Partner Consortium
We are pleased to announce that University of Pittsburgh has renewed its Coursera Partner Consortium (formerly the University of Pittsburgh on Coursera Program) through September 2022.
This partnership was originally designed by the Coursera community to assist colleges and universities with delivering courseware online to help minimize the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak on students, faculty and staff. This program allows Pitt students, faculty, and staff to access nearly 4,000 courses offered by Coursera partner institutions at no cost.
The courses are non-credit, but successful completion could earn joint credentials from both the universities offering the course and Coursera. One of the goals of the Coursera at Pitt program is to make these courses available if faculty would like to supplement their classes, or if students would like to enroll in these short courses as enrichment opportunities.
SkillSets are now available for all Consortium learners. SkillSets are job-based learning programs with curated courses and projects that prepare learners with the in-demand skills necessary for high-growth careers. Learn more about the benefits of this feature and how you can use them at your institution in Coursera’s blog.
You must have a pitt.edu email to enroll. Use your University email when logging in or creating your Coursera account. You can visit University of Pittsburgh on Coursera to get started today.
The University of Pittsburgh offers several Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in partnership with Coursera. The University’s MOOCs are free to enroll and available in most countries around the world.
