What do counseling theory, the world economy, homemade cologne, and yodeling have in common? Watch this video to find out more and to learn about the next Profiles in Innovation Presidential Speaker Series featuring Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera.
Daphne Koller is co-founder of Coursera, a leading platform for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that is revolutionizing delivery of higher education to millions around the world.
Koller—a distinguished computer science professor, researcher, and pioneer in machine learning at Stanford University—originated many of the ideas that propelled that institution’s online education efforts. Now, with Coursera, she is helping to drive MOOCs’ game-changing potential to transform higher education as we know it.
Join us for a discussion with President Aoun and this eminent education entrepreneur, who, in her TED talk last spring, emphasized the importance of education as a human right, and is using MOOCs as an opportunity to discover how we learn best in the digital age.
