Coursera and Google have announced their partnership to provide a course in IT support. Google has developed a six-course curriculum which would allow prospective job seekers to prepare for an entry-level role in IT support.
Since it is meant for an entry-level job seeker, it is open for all, including those who do not have prior knowledge about IT. The lectures would be available only in English.
While such tie-up is been formed by Google primarily for the US market, something along these lines can always and must be planned for India.

It is an 8 to 12 months long course for which the user has to dedicate 8-10 hours every week. It begins from 25 January onwards.
This course is available for $49. However, Google is also providing financial assistance only to US citizens.
According to the blog post, the lectures would be available through “video lectures, quizzes, and hands-on labs and widgets”.
The course has been designed by IT professionals from Google and has been a part of the ‘Grow with Google’ initiative.
Dubbed as the ‘Google IT Support Professional Certificate’ course, Coursera aims to prepare people for entry-level jobs in the IT market.
