TED Talk: Daphne Koller (Co-Founder of Coursera) on What We're Learning from Online Education
In the TED Talk above, Stanford
professor Daphne Koller shares her excitement about making the college experience
available to anyone through her startup, Coursera.
With classes from 16 top colleges, Coursera is an innovative model for
online learning. While top schools have been putting lectures online for
years, Coursera's platform supports the other vital aspect of the
classroom: tests and assignments that reinforce learning.
