Mountain View online education startup Coursera just nabbed two new hires from Facebook Inc. and Netflix Inc., according to a company spokesperson. The additions to the executive team come just months after the Stanford-bred purveyor of Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, landed a $43 million series B funding round led by Silicon Valley venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and NEA. Despite a total $65 million in funding, Coursera remains in the experimentation phase when it comes to rolling out products that actually generate revenue.
