Coursera Inc. Key Developments
UT and TBR Partner with Coursera Inc. to Pilot Technology for Courses
May 30 13
The University of Tennessee and Tennessee Board of Regents systems are working with Coursera Inc. to develop a pilot program using the company's technology to enhance online and campus-based blended learning courses. The agreement with UT and TBR systems will involve an 18-month pilot program to test Coursera's technology platform for class offerings. Faculty at public universities in Tennessee will teach and prepare a limited number of pilot courses, available to enrolled students, using the company's technology platform as early as this fall. The Tennessee public university pilot will not include massive open online courses. Instead, it will test use of the Coursera course technology platform to enhance student outcomes in two courses in the UT System and two courses in TBR universities. Feedback from faculty and students will be used to determine whether more courses will be offered through the Coursera platform.
