UNext Learning, India’s first ed-tech company that offers end-to-end online learning, professional skilling and assessment solutions, announced its partnership with Coursera to offer access to curated courses to their learners. With this collaboration, students who enrol in online degree programmes offered on UNext’s platform through partner institutions get access to over 7000 cutting edge courses that have been specially curated for each programme by Coursera for Campus.

Speaking on the collaboration, Ambrish Sinha, Chief Executive Officer, UNext Learning, said, “We at UNext are focused on building the next gen online learning platform for the higher education ecosystem. Our partnership with Coursera aims to impact the learning outcomes by bringing to our student and learner community the best in class curriculum and content from the best educators & colleges across the world. Students enrolled in our postgraduate online degree programmes can now acquire in-demand industry ready skills that will enable them to pursue careers in fast-moving domains like technology, data science, and management. We are committed to reimagine online learning for a better future for our community.”

The collaboration aims to create a flexible learning environment and sharpen the students’ digital and new-age skill sets. The courses range from new-age tech programmes focused on data analytics, AI/ML, and cloud computing to digital marketing, leadership, and management. Students will get free access to online educational study materials from Coursera’s partners to promote conceptual clarity and subject-based mastery.

“The pandemic has accelerated the speed at which education institutions are executing on their digital strategy,” said Raghav Gupta, Managing Director – India and APAC, Coursera. “We are excited to be a part of UNext’s vision to make high quality education available to its students. Our association with Manipal Group goes back a long time. We are humbled by the impact of this partnership and looking forward to the opportunities the broader access to Coursera will create for UNext’s students.”

Students have been compelled to learn in unexpected ways as a result of the country-wide shut down. Change isn’t on its way; it’s already here, and UNext, through this partnership with Coursera for Campus, ensures that academic processes are not compromised. The students will receive certification from Coursera on successful completion of courses.
