It says in a contract that "it will 'only' offer classes from elite institutions – the members of the Association of American Universities or "top five" universities in countries outside of North America – unless Coursera's advisory board agrees to waive the requirement. The little-known contractual language appears in agreements Coursera signs with the 62 universities it partners with."
