Coursera, a major provider of open online courses, said Wednesday it blocked access to its offerings to students in Iran, Cuba and Sudan due to sanctions compliance issues.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based online startup, created by two Stanford University professors, said in a blog post that export control regulations relating to online course providers “has been unclear,” and it had operated under the belief that its business wouldn’t be restricted.
But the blog post said the company recently received information that the services Coursera offers aren’t in compliance with U.S. law, so it implemented an IP address block preventing users from sanctioned countries–Iran, Cuba and Sudan–from logging into their accounts.
