"OpenClassrooms wants to make education accessible by prioritizing a community-based, engaging learning experience."




OpenClassrooms is an online platform offering top quality, education-to-employment programs and career coaching services for students worldwide. If you are looking for the next steps in your career, OpenClassrooms will get you there.

It all started in 1999 in the south of France when Mathieu Nebra, at only 13 years old, wanted to learn to code. He couldn’t find a book or online source that taught coding simply and clearly for beginners. In response, he launched his own course online on a blog he called Site du Zero (or “Learn from Scratch”). Soon after, Mathieu met Pierre Dubuc. They teamed up to grow the site’s community and develop its content. Quickly Site du Zero became a reference point for the French-speaking web.

In 2013, Pierre and Mathieu launched OpenClassrooms, an online platform offering free courses on a multitude of subjects. Today we offer Career Paths from which students can earn French state-endorsed, bachelor’s- and master’s-level diplomas.

Since the beginning, the goal has been to make complex ideas and skills accessible to all — even for beginners with no experience. But an education is not complete if it does not lead to a career. That is why OpenClassrooms focuses on the employability of our students. As such, we have a big goal. By 2025 we will help one million OpenClassrooms students find jobs and advance their careers each year.
