Penn is strongly committed to open learning — a vital part of our mission is to increase access for engaged students from around the world by connecting them to the educational resources that can change their lives.
Penn is proud to be one of the founding partners of and board members in Coursera: the online platform for open-access and non-credit classes that are available at no cost to audiences around the world. Coursera is dedicated to working with high-quality university partners rather than with individual instructors. Currently, Coursera has 83 partner institutions.
