November 22, 2013  |  All Things Digital

After being founded just last year, online education startup Coursera turned heads this summer when it raised a $43 million Series B round. Coursera’s current business model is selling verified certificates that students have completed its classes. Turns out the final amount of the round was actually $63 million. The company created by two Stanford professors told AllThingsD it had added $20 million more, with the delay from the previous close attributed to the fact that much of the money was coming from three university partners, who have long due diligence processes. Coursera isn’t naming the three university backers, but said the round also included additional money from existing investors GSV Capital and Learn Capital.
