Let’s dive into the Digital Marketing sector

The training created by the University of Illinois and is divided into 6 courses

  1. Marketing in a digital world
  2. Digital analytics for marketing professionals
  3. Marketing analytics in practice
  4. Digital marketing channels – the landscape
  5. Digital marketing channels – Planning
  6. Digital marketing capstone

By the end of the course you will master strategic marketing concepts and tools to address brand communication in a digital world.



Each of 6 courses costs €69 so we have €414 in total.If you pay all the courses at once you get a discount of 10% reducing the final price to €372.





Course 1 of Digital Marketing – Marketing in a digital world

The 1st course of this department is a 4 week study with 6/8 hours per week commitment.It includes reading sessions , videos and quizzes and no prior experience is required to complete it.


Quick Overview of the Course


The price of €414 is affordable and you have the ability to work on your own from the comfort of your home or office.And you avoid all the costs associated by entering a University campus.

The Coursera learning approach is influenced by 4 key ideas

  1. Effectiveness of online learning – a recent report of the US department of education shows that classes with online learning on average produce stronger learning outcomes than those with solely face to face instruction.
  2. Mastery learning – helps learners fully understand a topic before moving onto a more advanced.
  3. Peer assessments – learners can evaluate and provide feedback on each other’s work
  4. Blended learning – many of the partnering institutions use the Coursera platform to provide their on-campus students with an improved learning experience.That blended model increase student engagement , attendance and performance , according to studies.
