Our Approach

The Coursera experience It’s simple. Coursera wants to help students learn better — and faster. That’s why Coursera has designed a platform based on proven teaching methods verified by top researchers. Here are 4 key ideas that were influential in shaping our vision: Effectiveness of online learning Online learning plays a significant role in a lifelong education. In fact, a recent report by the U.S. Department of Education found that “classes with online learning (whether taught completely online or blended) on average produce stronger student learning outcomes than do classes with solely face-to-face instruction.” Mastery learning Based on an approach developed by educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom, Mastery Learning helps students fully understand a topic before moving onto a more advanced topic. Coursera typically gives immediate feedback on a concept a student did not understand. In many cases, Coursera provides randomized versions of the assignment so a student can re-study and re-attempt the homework. Peer assessments In many courses, the most meaningful assignments cannot be easily graded by a computer. That’s why Coursera uses peer assessments, where students can evaluate and provide feedback on each other’s work. This technique has been shown in many studies to result in accurate feedback for the student and a valuable learning experience for the grader. Blended learning Many of our partner institutions are using our online platform to provide their on-campus students with an improved learning experience. This blended model of learning has shown in studies to increase student engagement, attendance, and performance.
