IDCEE 2013 Main Stage:
video appeal of Daphne Koller
For today Coursera has about five million students, they study 450 courses, which are available on platform from 88 universities our company cooperates with, said Daphne Koller, Co-Founder of the organization. She added that Coursera collaborates with universities from the U.S., Europe, Australia and Latin America. "We initially started as IT-courses, but now we have a full range of courses on subjects in the humanities and physical sciences, business education," – said Daphne. An important role in online courses plays video: "It's not just a passive form of communication, but also active. People need to solve the task. You answer the question and get the right answer online. This is alike to what happens in the classroom when the teacher in the audience asks questions".
