How to overcome common challenges of introducing massive open online courses to your learning portfolio. When e-learning first emerged a couple decades ago, organizations turned their backs on it. But by 2014 resistance had collapsed. With the conquest of swifter and cheaper virtual training over traditional methods, organizations started shutting down lavish ­country-club training parks and canceling employee travel to exotic sites. Yet, just when companies started imagining the learning industry was comfortably settled, dominated by just two principle players—classrooms and e-learning—a new competitor invaded.

About five years ago, computer scientists at Stanford University astonished everyone by streaming video lectures worldwide to anyone—for free. Since then, thousands of high-quality courses have streamed to millions of people.
