In late March 2020, Coursera responded by introducing free certificates for around 100 online courses. Initially, the plan was for these to remain free until the end of May. But the offer proved so successful for Coursera, that it was extended — first until July 31, then until the end of 2020.
Now, to kick off 2021, Coursera is allowing its learners to redeem a free certificate course from a list of 25+ courses. Each learner can redeem just one course. The offer is valid until January 31, 2021.
The promotion includes courses from the University of Michigan, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Sydney, Berklee College of Music, and more. Some courses about COVID-19 from Johns Hopkins and Stanford University also currently have free certificates.
