These days almost anything can be learned via online courses or instructional videos, and Google is acknowledging that with the release of a new schema markup specifically for courses! Shoutout to Aaron Bradley who spotted this first and shared it on Twitter.

This markup can specify the course title, provider, and offer up a short course description – resulting in the following possible search result:

  "description": "Introductory CS course laying out the basics.",
  "provider": {
    "@type": "Organization",
    "name": "University of Technology - Eureka",
