Coursera has already released updates to its terms of service addressing GDPR requirements. And when asked if the company plans to review instructor data-collection practices, the spokesperson said Coursera is “working closely with university partners to mutually take measures required for GDPR compliance.” The GDPR will go into effect on May 25, and failure to comply could result in fines of 20 million euros or 4 percent of the entity’s global annual revenue, depending on what is greater. But there’s a caveat: “Each supervisor authority that enforces this will determine what [consequence] should be applied,” explains Johnson. “A lot of provisions are open to interpretation.”
