Learners come first.

Learners come first because you matter. Because education is a human right. We empower you, because we know that with the right tools, you’ll find the way forward. And make changes for yourself and for the world.

Think big.
Then think bigger.

Impact means keeping the community and its vast network in mind, always. For us, it meant forming partnerships with NGOs, companies and even entire countries. Bringing others into your movement means we all grow together.

Question the
status quo.

In 2012, U.S. college enrollment dropped by 500,000 students. Traditional degrees were one-size-fits-all. We asked why. And what could we do about it? The right questions change everything. Raise your hand. Wonder. Ask why.

Bridge divides.

Lack of access should never keep people from their goals. We strive to build bridges paved with knowledge, close professional skills gaps and empower as many people as possible. We can all seek ways to bring collaborators into your mission.

Rise to societal challenges.

When collective challenges arise, it’s up to each of us to meet the moment. When learners needed virtual courses on medical ventilators, vaccines and remote work, we stepped in to help.

If it doesn't exist,
build it.

Just because something hasn’t been done doesn’t mean it can’t be. Ten years later, “hasn’t been done” has become a world of opportunity to earn degrees in ways that weren’t possible before. Look at blank spaces and wonder what could be.

Set goals that
seem impossible.

Ten years ago we dared to dream big: We set a goal of reaching 1 billion learners. We’re still working toward that, with our partners and students, every single day. If it doesn’t seem impossible, it’s not a big enough goal.
