Video of Coursera Founder’s U.Va. Talk is Online
There was a lot happening on Grounds Feb. 20. That was when John Kerry came to Old Cabell Hall to give his first address as Secretary of State; when the Board of Visitors opened three days of meetings; and when U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine came to Grounds to talk with ROTC cadets (and to introduce Kerry).
There was one other event on Grounds that was notable in its own right, and probably would have been bigger news on many other days: Daphne Koller, the co-founder of Coursera, spoke at the Curry School about the online revolution in higher education. (In fact, U.Va. sometimes feels like Ground Zero for that revolution.)
Realizing that many of you could not sit at speeches all day, here’s the complete video of Koller’s talk.
