Coursera is one of the world’s top online learning platforms, founded in 2012 by Stanford University computer science professors Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller. Coursera works with universities and other organizations to offer online courses, certifications, and degrees in a variety of subjects. Last week, the British RPA leader Blue Prism announced a partnership with Coursera to help narrow the digital skills gap and train future leaders capable of steering digital workforces.
Now, Coursera’s more than 82 million learners will have access to the Blue Prism Foundation Course. In the coming months, Blue Prism will launch more courses that are also designed to provide an opportunity to further upskill and eventually take an industry-recognized certification exam.
“We are excited to partner with Coursera to deliver the training people need to run and govern businesses’ digital workforces. The platform will help us enhance our own training and certification program and meet our goal of increasing the RPA talent pool to address the skills gap in RPA and intelligent automation. We look forward to expanding our footprint in collaboration with Coursera, to meet the needs of the growing RPA learning community.”
Ana Howes, Global Head of Education Services, Blue Prism
“We are pleased to partner with Blue Prism, a leader in the intelligent automation industry, to provide learners with cutting-edge coursework.

The new learning content from Blue Prism prepares people across various roles, industries, and regions for this exciting new frontier.”
