Online courses are gaining popularity when it comes to reskilling and upskilling employees.Platforms such as Coursera, UpGrad and Udacity are witnessing 30-40 per cent growth in enrolments. According to industry experts, the ever evolving job roles in the light of new age technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, big data and Internet of Things, require employees to constantly upgrade their skills. High quality learning from some of the world class university is today available on a mobile phone or tablet at affordable rates. This has led to a rise in demand for such online courses, Raghav Gupta, director – India and APAC, Coursera, told BusinessLine. Coursera has been adding close to 65,000 new learners every month. The company, which entered the segment with B2C (business-to-consumer) programmes, also rolled out B2B (business-to-business) courses two years back through tie ups with companies.
