Health Related Courses On Top For Learners In India In 2020

A record number of people turned to online learning as a source of hope, growth, and resilience amid economic uncertainty

Responding to the ongoing pandemic, Indians turned to online learning to better understand the ways in which they are impacted and how to take care of mental and physical health. Courses on Covid-19, physical fitness, mental health, and happiness, along with psychology in the healthcare domain, were among the most subscribed courses on Coursera online learning platform in 2020.

The high number of Covid-19 cases in India has put immense pressure on the existing healthcare infrastructure and frontline workers in the country, requiring a larger pool of skilled professionals to efficiently respond to the pandemic. The pandemic altered the way of life, adversely impacting mental and physical health. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates suggest that almost 20% of India might have fallen prey to some of the other mental disorder by the end of this year.
