Stanford and Michigan university are the most popular among Coursera’s 5 million Indian users

A large number of Indians seem happy to forego textbooks and adopt tech-savvy online courses. This is perhaps why Coursera, the US-based edtech platform, has 4.8 million users in India, accounting for over 10% of its user base. This is a marker of both India’s skilling needs and Coursera’s potential to fulfil them, according to Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera.
