Shravan Goli, Chief Product Officer of Coursera, said that currently, over one million tertiary-level students have turned to Coursera to continue their studies during the pandemic lockdown.

“Nearly 70% of the world’s students remain impacted by campus closures due to the coronavirus. Among them are hundreds of millions of students in colleges and universities around the world. While on-campus education is interrupted, learning must continue,” Goli said in a statement.
