The Coursera experience

    Effective Online Learning

    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

    Mastery Learning

    Based on an approach developed by educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom, Mastery Learning helps learners fully understand a topic before moving onto a more advanced topic. On Coursera, we typically give immediate feedback on a concept a learner did not understand. In many cases, we provide randomized versions of the assignment so a learner can re-study and re-attempt until they master it.

  • Peers


    Peer Assessments

    Peer assessments

    In many courses, the most meaningful assignments cannot be easily graded by a computer. That’s why we use peer assessments, where learners 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 learner and a valuable learning experience for the grader.

    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.
