Partner Experience works with all of our amazing University and Industry Partners. How do our partners produce a great course experience for learners and determine whether or not they've been successful in creating value? The Partner Experience team works on projects, including but not limited to, item sharing and how to allow partners to make an update in one place but have it propagate elsewhere seamlessly, grading tools so we can give TAs full submission details and the ability to customize feedback and grades per-student, building an Enterprise Admin dashboard to demonstrate the value Coursera is delivering to employees and allow enterprise partners to manage their contract with Coursera.
