The job postings at http://coursera.theresumator.com/
reveal that Stanford professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng are founding a company. This is what it has to say:"In Fall 2011, Stanford University’s free online classes (http://ml-class.org, http://db-class.org) delivered high quality courses to hundreds of thousands of students in 176 countries around the world. Stanford professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng are founding a company that is following up on the success of these courses to scale up online education efforts to provide a high quality education to the world."
Some other excerpts from the job postings:"We see a future where world-leading educators are at the center of the education conversation, and their reach is limitless, bounded only by the curiosity of those who seek their knowledge; where universities such as Stanford, Harvard, and Yale serve millions instead of thousands.""Our approach will allow universities to provide an alternative to standard lecture classes for on-campus students. We propose a flipped classroom model, in which students use our interactive videos to watch the content in advance, and classroom time is used for a more meaningful and engaging interaction between faculty and students, and between students themselves."
At the time of writing, 6 open job positions were available: Course Support Technician, Senior Web Developer, Software Engineer, Summer Internship, UI/UX Designer, and Web Developer.
