Have you wondered whether people working at Coursera actually take Coursera courses?

Well, we do!

Last year we set a goal: 90% of employees would complete one course on Coursera by the end of 2018. How did we do? Find out in this blog post by Coursera's Director of Learning & Development @Ian.

Some of us take more courses than others. Pssst, @Alexandra, how many courses have you completed?

Thank you @Laura

Inspired by the expertise of our global partners and fueled by a shared passion with our millions of learners around the world (you all!), I have completed 50 courses on Coursera so far. From computer programming to philosophy, business leadership to poetry, I am am always delighted to dive into new topics :)

Curious: have you found a subject area on Coursera that you didn't previously know existed but now are excited by? For me, this is the magic of online, lifelong learning!

This sheds light on questions I've had. I have often ask myself does Coursera hire people who have completed courses from their platform or if any of their employees completed courses.

I have applied for jobs with Coursera, but no luck... So this kinda answers some questions I've had.

hi guys, I feel I have earned far more certificates than I could have ever imagined and that also after I turned 50! I can not even count those, still, try to accumulate those on my linkedin profile, as, that is a good reference page, if I need to lookup any past class. In terms of certificates I am rich, still real richness is how I use the acquired knowledge to transform my life . I would say, what really counts is what we do with the knowledge that we acquire to make the world a better place, is the philanthropic use of the certificates that endorse our learning on MOOCs. This learning should be spread with love and should encourage social justice.
