STATE OFFERING FREE ONLINE CLASSES THROUGH COURSERA FOR HAWAII RESIDENTS

News Release from DBEDT HTDC Sept 25, 2020 

HONOLULU – The Hawai‘i Technology Development Corporation (HTDC) is offering Hawai‘i residents complimentary access to the Coursera online learning platform with registration open until October 31, 2020. Approved users can take their pick from more than 3,000 courses and certifications from top universities and organizations, ranging from technology to business and personal development offerings. HTDC is an agency of the Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism (DBEDT) and has partnered with the TRUE Initiative to bring the Coursera Workforce Recovery Initiative to Hawai‘i.

This initiative, administered through HTDC, offers educational resources to Hawai‘i’s workforce, especially unemployed workers, so they can equip themselves with technology skills and reposition for new career opportunities. Those currently employed or furloughed can leverage Coursera’s offerings to upskill themselves and take on more advanced technology projects. A list of HTDC recommended courses for those interested in picking up technology skills can be found at https://www.htdc.org/covid-19/learning-tech/.

The State has up to 5,000 online learning licenses available that provide free access to courses; approved users will have until December 31, 2020 to complete the courses they have enrolled in at no extra cost.  Applicants need to be a Hawaii resident to apply.
