Coursera is a newly founded social entrepreneurship company whose mission is to make high-quality education accessible to everyone by allowing the best universities to offer courses to people around the world, for free. Professor Koller will discuss this far-reaching experiment in education, and why they believe this model can provide both an improved classroom experience for on-campus students, as well as a meaningful learning experience for the millions of students around the world who would otherwise never have access to education of this quality.
