Coursera.org announced yesterday new partnerships with three Latin American universities.
The Mountain View, California-based learning platform also said it added over 5 million new learners in the region in the past year. The company now has 15 university and industry partners in Latin America, and over 530 courses subtitled or natively in Spanish.
The new partners are the following:
- Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (UAM). A first-course, Geometría Analítica Preuniversitaria, was launched yesterday on Coursera. The institution plans to expand its online catalog with general education courses.
- Universidad Nacional de Colombia (UNAL). Its first course on Coursera, Cuidando a la persona en situación crítica de salud en UCI, helps nurses care for patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit. UNAL also plans to launch courses in basic physics and chemistry.
- Unversidad de Palermo (UP). The new course of this Argentinian university, Psicologia, was issued yesterday. Courses in business, psychology, and other areas are also planned.
Last year, it also announced its first Spanish-language degree program — an online master’s degree in software engineering from Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia.
