In order to facilitate their further growth in the quickly developing field of online education, US-based startup Coursera has translated 4000 courses into Hindi with the use of generative artificial intelligence. This will provide outstanding courses like DeepLearning’s Generative AI for Everyone to the Hindi-speaking audience. Among these are IBM’s What is Data Science?, Yale University’s The Science of Well-Being, University of Michigan’s Programming for Everyone, and AI.

Coursera started offering online courses from some of the top universities in the world in 2012 and set up shop in India.

According to Coursera, more than 40 courses from the nation’s prestigious universities, including Trading Basics from Indian School of Business (ISB), Leadership Skills from IIM Ahmedabad, and Introduction to Programming from BITS Pilani, will also be translated into 18 languages, including French, Spanish, German, and Thai.

India now has more students enrolled in courses than the US. According to Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera, this is a pandemic effect. “India has had enormous growth during the pandemic, with 18.6 million new learners registering, more than a million more than the US (17.1 million). This is because more than any other nation, Indians are eager to advance their skills in order to improve their employment opportunities. No one had predicted that the idea of working from home would be so popular prior to the epidemic. During the lockdown, Indians worked and improved their skills online, he claimed.

There has been a significant increase in enrolment in some states, including Tamil Nadu (2.3 million), Karnataka (2.6 million), and Maharashtra (4.1 million).

“These would rank in the top 10 on Coursera with a 52% CAGR if they were a country instead of a set of states,” he continued.

We are surprised not only by city registrations but also by those from remote areas. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) showed that the Andaman and Nicobar Islands rose by 800 percent, Manipur by 710 percent, Bihar by 650 percent, Mizoram by 610 percent, and Kerala by 520 percent.
