Coursera, the world’s largest platform for MOOCs (edX is the second), has launched a Big Data Analytics course with PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP).
PwC is one of the first professional services firms to offer courses to their workforce of 208,000 on Coursera.com.
With this course, says PwC, “you will gain insights that PwC US and its clients use to address their toughest challenges every day. What you learn can help to enhance your personal brand, help your career, and assist you with achieving your potential. Through this PwC Coursera offering, you’ll get valuable knowledge from leading professionals shaping their industries.”
On the other hand, Coursera has recently been on the news after its co-founder, Daphne Koller, decided to leave the company to join Calico, a Google-funded research and development company that focuses on slowing aging and counteracting age‑related diseases. She explained this on her blog.
