The University of Florida’s Office of Professional and Workforce Development in partnership with Coursera is pleased to offer for a limited time, the COVID19 Access Free Education (CAFE) Program. From now until July 31st, you can register for and take any of the over 3,000 courses that Coursera offers on its learning platform.
We hope that travel restrictions will soon be lifted and that social distancing rules will start to be relaxed but until then, use this valuable time to improve your knowledge and gain new skills!
There are six banner programs being offered under this program:
- High School Students: we have selected over 100 courses and one specialization for high school students motivated to learn. For those graduating, you will find courses that help with resume writing as well as other workforce readiness courses.
- Teachers: the entire Coursera catalog is open to you with topics that include: how to teach online, managing your mental health during COVID19, managing change and many other courses to meet your needs.
- UF Students: the entire Coursera catalog is open to you. This is a great opportunity to add value to your degree by completing a specialization in a specific subject area or achieve an industry certification in a program such as Google IT Support.
- BOLD: we have selected a series of workforce readiness and personal development courses to help in the process of preparing for employment.
- Gainesville Housing Authority: we have selected a series of workforce readiness and personal development courses to help you in the process of preparing for employment, and taking care of yourself and family.
- Workforce: the entire Coursera catalog is open to you. The courses offered through this program may help upskill or reskill you for a new beginning during and post COVID19.
