Coursera is a for-profit educational technology company offering massive open online courses (MOOCs) founded by computer science
The website provides free online courses including Humanities, Medicine, Biology, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Business, Computer Science, and others. Each course includes short video lectures on different topics and assignments to be submitted, usually on a weekly basis. In most humanities and social science courses, and other assignments where an objective standard may not be possible, a peer review system is used.
Coursera works with universities to make some of their courses available online, and offers courses in physics, engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, social sciences, mathematics, business, computer science, and other areas. On December 17, 2013, Coursera introduced its official mobile app for iPhone.

Web forums are provided for courses, and some students also arrange face to face study meet-ups using, or online meetups. However, the Coursera Honor Code prohibits copying answers, therefore the discussion should not exchange answers but should practice a healthy debate.
More than 100 courses were offered in Fall 2012.[10] A Swiss University partner, EPFL, offers French courses. It was announced in November 2012 that Coursera would work with the American Council on Education (ACE) to evaluate credit equivalency for the Coursera courses.[15] In 2014, a French business school[who?] will offer a course "Understanding Europe", under the supervision of Alberto Alemanno, that will be recognized as official source of information by the European Commission.
