Here is email I got from coursera today morning
We are THRILLED to announce that 12 universities -- including three international institutions -- will be joining Princeton University, Stanford University, University of Michigan, and University of Pennsylvania in offering classes on Coursera.
On Coursera, you will now be able to access world-class courses from:
You'll be able to choose from more than 100 new courses, from learning how to program in Scala (taught from the creator of Scala, Professor Martin Odersky from EPFL), to Professor Dan Ariely's course on irrational behavior, to the legendary UVA course "How Things Work" with Professor Louis Bloomfield. You can check out the most current course list here -- keep in mind you can enroll in a class even if the start date is to be announced.
To date, 700,000 students from 190 countries have participated in classes on Coursera, with more than 1.6 million course enrollments total!
To everyone who has taken a class on Coursera, or who has recommended us to your friends and family -- thank you! Education is starting to look very different, and we're excited and humbled to be part of it.

Interesting comment from the article comment section:
Though it's TBA, I'd highly recommend Magnus Egerstedt's (GA Tech) mobile robotics course. Best prof I've had in person.
Too many classes, so little time...
