Gizmodo reported that the online learning platform Coursera will make 3,800 of its courses available free to unemployed people due to the coronavirus epidemic. The Coursera Workforce Recovery Initiative is part of its Coursera for Government training program for government employees.

According to the Coursera blog post, the initiative aims to help workers develop skills to be redeployed. You cannot apply for free courses as an individual; Government agencies serving unemployed workers must apply for access.

“Coursera for Government is created for government agencies to give reskilling and upskilling programs for whole communities,” in accordance with the Coursera site.

Approximately 26 million individuals in the united states have registered for unemployment within the previous five weeks amid stay-at-home orders.

The classes incorporate company-specific training applications from Coursera partners such as Google and IBM, in addition to classes in the fields of cloud computing, emerging engineering, machine learning, large data, along with additional business-specific training.

Coursera Chief Executive Officer Jeff Magionkloda told Forbes, “Contessa, along with her community of colleagues, is ready to serve the millions of workers who have lost their jobs and are going to spend a difficult time in a slow economy. ”

Condition agencies in Arizona, Illinois, and Oklahoma, are the very first in the US to create the classes available. The authorities of Colombia, Costa Rica, Greece, Malaysia, Panama, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan are also participating, according to the Organization. Coursera hopes to add more government agencies into the app at the forthcoming weeks.
