Duke’s continuing partnership with Coursera extended the knowledge and expertise of Duke’s remarkable faculty to learners across the globe, most of whom would never have access to Duke.

In 2015-16, Coursera moved to a new platform designed to better support courses that are “always available.” Previously, Coursera courses launched and ended at pre-selected times. Making courses always available provides rolling opportunities for learners to sign up for a Coursera course or specialization. CIT migrated 17 courses to the new format and platform, and will rebuild an additional 10 courses before December 2016.

  • Total enrolled/registered: 3.8 million
    • Total enrollment in session-based courses (2012-2016): 3.1 million
    • Total registration in on-demand courses (2015-2016): 741,966
  • Total active learners: 2 million
  • Total completions: 108,809
  • Total paid enrollments: 59,498 
  • 27 session-based courses, 74 sessions over 4 years
  • 16 on-demand courses (original on the platform)
  • 12 session-based courses transitioned to on-demand, 2 split in to multiple courses
