Another prominent player in the market is Coursera, based in Mountain View, Calif., which offers courses and degree programs from big-name universities. Like edX, Coursera was a pioneer in 2012 and 2013 in the movement to offer free access to massive open online courses. Known as MOOCs, those courses sometimes drew tens of thousands of learners. They were considered a breakthrough that could reshape a market for exclusive colleges and universities long focused on in-person education.
