MOOCs: Scaling Corporate Learning

While MOOCs have gained the interest and attention of higher education, they have failed to make much of an impact on corporate learning. That is starting to change. Over the past year, organizations such as Google, GE, Cisco, McAfee, Bank of America, AXA, and AT&T have started to experiment with MOOCs. Non-profits and NGOs such as Linux Foundation, WEF, OECD, Red Cross, and others have also started experimenting with large scale online learning.

In trying to get a pulse of MOOCs in corporate learning, I’ve found it difficult to get a sense of what is happening broadly with MOOCs outside of higher education. I catch press releases and partnership announcements, but the conversation is too fragmented to provide a sense of lessons being learned and various implementation model. The sharing of practices and experiences in higher education is more prominent.

To address this lack of dialogue in this space, we are organizing an online conference on MOOCs: Scaling Corporate Learning. The event is free/open and will be held June 18 & 19. Registration is now open. The schedule and speaker list will be posted later this week.

  3. Hi there,

    I run Coursera’s corporate strategy (how we engage with companies, leverage our courses for employee training/L&D, etc.).

    I’d be happy to participate in a panel or give a talk if you think it would be useful.
