Many other LMS systems, including Blackboard, and Canvas, have been examined or utilized by us in the past. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but I believe Coursera is an attractive option for any company because of its well-known brand and global presence of high-level universities, which I think Udemy for Business does not have. It is a terrific method for students to take courses and gain certification from well-known companies and college credit.

We've looked at or used many different LMS platforms including Blackboard, Learnshare, Canvas, Cornerstone, SABA, and many others. Each has its pros & cons but I feel Coursera given its brand recognition and built-in following it's a great value for any organization. I would not want to build out an entire MBA or other MASTERS level online program on it but it is a great way to allow potential students to experience your institutions content for a low price (of free).

Coursera has a wider variety of courses and more institutions as partners. The certifications Coursera gives, have more value than other brands.

I like Coursera because it has lots of high quality contents I can use. I learn a lot from the professors from the top universities in the world. Coursera also has generous policy of financial aids. I am thankful for that policy that makes my learning on Coursera more reachable.

Coursera has been the only tool of its kind I've used intensively. I've seen video lectures from other learning providers and while they can be effective, what makes Coursera special to me is its interactivity and creative ways to allow the student to solve problems and gain experience by practice.

I think Coursera has the best overall interface. I think you will find that different platforms go in different directions, and have different specialities. For the most part the differences are more in the types of courses they offer than one being particularly better than the other, so it comes down to content for me.

Coursera has wide range of disciplines and some subjects other MOOC platforms do not have. I am using Coursera along with other online educational platforms and courses to arrange courses on a complex schedule. Coursera has a free option (free listener) where students are able to attend without paying. Simply speaking, Coursera has nice intuitive web UI.

  • edx, codeacademy, dataquest and datacamp
Edx is a direct competitor to Coursera. It also offers online courses. I find that on average courses on Edx are more oriented towards theory than on Coursera. Codeacademy, dataquest and datacamp are tools to learn / improve your programming skills 'in the browser'. They are much more practical and are a good way to learn new skills by putting them in practice via tutorials.

There is a Mentor Course, for those chosen that have been good at some courses. You can find almost everything (talking about courses), of lots of topics and categories. It's simply amazing. You can learn a lot, even if you don't pay for the certificate.

  • Colleges
Obviously, Coursera lacks some of the formal credentials that a college or university degree offers. It also has limitations when it comes to a broad scope curated academic course that a university degree offers. However, it does afford users who couldn't afford a full-on degree, either with regards to cost or time, the opportunity to access high quality learning materials that can significantly improve their ability to do work. I believe that a self-taught employee, especially in this era of insanely fast technological development, can be of more value to a company than an army of employees that only believe in the traditional model of studying for 4 years and spending the rest of their lives limited to the knowledge and skills obtained during their studies.
