Free Learning Opportunity on Coursera for ASEACCU Members

May 20, 2024

Dearest Members of ASEACCU,

Greetings! We are excited to announce that as a result of an intiative of the ASEACCU Executive Board, Coursera is now offering free trial license for members of our community. 

Brief Introduction on Coursera: 

Coursera is an online learning platform featuring courses, degrees, certificate programs, and tutorials in a wide range of subjects. Over 300 leading universities and companies provide instruction, including Stanford, Duke, Google, and IBM.

Visit the Coursera website here: https://www.coursera.org/ 

Type of Courses Available for ASEACCU Members: 

After the ASEACCU Conference in Baguio City last year, members have expressed interest to continue the conversation surrounding Laudato si’ and the concrete actions we may take within our communities. Coursera has curated a list of SDGs related courses that may inform the topics we touched on during the Conference.

There are also other free courses across a range of subjects available on the platform. Some paid courses offer the option for you to fill out an application to apply for financial aid to take the course. 

Each course page will detail the learning objectives, syllabus, estimated study hours and assessments. Courses usually take 2 to 4 weeks to complete. Upon enrollment, you can get graded, partake in peer-review assignments, and receive a certificate at the end of the course.
