The Content Platform team works on the fundamental building blocks for Coursera's course experience. This experience is 2-sided: learners want to learn by engaging actively with material & in many cases, earn a credential supported by rigorous & robust assessments, while content-creation partners want to author & grade content efficiently & effectively, with tools & data providing a feedback loop that allows them to create high-quality content. As a platform-focused team, we seek impact by building a customizable experience that can be used for a wide range of users.
