At Coursera for Business, we’re always launching new product features that will help you deliver better learning programs. This month, we’re excited to let you know about a recently released improvement to the learner experience for customers with LMS integrations into Coursera.
SSO deep-link parameter
Many of our enterprise customers are not able to implement IDP-initiated SSO with their Coursera for Business portal.
