Coursera founders Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng don’t think small. Their Mountain View, Calif., online-education company is less than two years old, yet it already has attracted more than 4 million student signups. Now Coursera has raised $43 million in fresh venture capital, tripling its cash available for growth. Coursera’s instructors include globally known professors from at least 73 universities worldwide, ranging from Brown to the University of Tokyo. The U.S. accounts for less than half of Coursera’s overall student enrollment; other prominent countries include Brazil,India, China, Canada, Britain, Russia and Germany.
