Happy Birthday #Coursera!
 
Coursera Turned Two Years Old! 

We started as a small but mighty team. When we took this photo two years ago, we didn't coordinate the navy blue theme, it just happened. And that is how we knew Coursera was part magic...

This month we collaged ~1,500 photos of Courserians on a wall in our office.

We predict the next two years (and many, many more after it) will be as rewarding, fun and innovative as the first.

We care about all 7 million learners, and thank you for your encouragement during this incredible journey.

I'm pleased to announce that next month I will be starting a new job: Senior Manager for US Public Policy at Amazon Web Services (AWS), a dynamic and fast-growing business unit of Amazon.com that provides powerful, cost-effective and innovative cloud computing solutions to hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide. While I'm sad to be leaving such a great group of colleagues and members here at the American Legislative Exchange Council, I'm very excited about this new opportunity to join a first-rate team of innovators at AWS to work on behalf of our customers to develop and advocate for public policies at the state and local levels that will promote cloud computing and its many benefits such as cost-savings, security, and reliability, especially in education. I look forward to keeping in touch with you all in my new role and to sharing my new adventures with you.

Think you can hack Heartbleed? CloudFlare invites you to try to steal private keys from an intentionally vulnerable server.

You like action flicks. So why does Netflix keep suggesting romantic comedies?

Farms in upstate New York and elsewhere are using automatic milkers that scan and map the underbellies of cows, extract the milk, and monitor its quality, without the use of human hands.

"If this were just about the flipped classroom I wouldn’t have decided to take this plunge. I see a completely new set of opportunities opening up for universities — and for individuals." 
- Rick Levin, quoted in The New York Times

Read the entire insightful interview of our new CEO!
