Business and Computer Science are the most popular courses on Coursera

Coursera is an educational technology company that offers massive open online courses (MOOCs). Coursera works with universities and other organizations to make some of their courses available online, offering courses in subjects such as physics, engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, social sciences, mathematics, business, computer science, digital marketing, and data science, among others. As of January 11, 2016 Coursera offers 1,563 courses from 140 partners across 28 countries.

A recent Coursera blog post revealed that Business and Computer Science are the top learning topics in every single US state in absolute terms. This is based on an analysis of 5 million courser users in the US. A previous Coursera blog post revealed that Computer Science is the most popular subject globally. So there is little doubt that it’s the most popular in Ireland too!
