An Insider's view of Coursera

What projects are you most excited about?

Even with strong demand signals and robust data, for higher education institutions, deciding to launch online programs is a departure from tradition and full of unknowns. I like the challenge of talking them through that transformation.

Shantelle

Director, University Partnerships

What is your vision for the company?

When I think about what sets Coursera apart, it really is this unit that is collectively succeeding and failing — and we all want each other to be successful because that's the only way that we can truly live out the vision and mission of Coursera.

Kim

Chief Marketing Officer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

The Make-a-thon is a modified version of a hackathon. The idea is that it's not just for engineers: You as an individual — whoever you are, whatever you do — you can take part in the Make-a-thon at Coursera.
