As e-learning becomes more affordable and more accessible, education expert Dr. Katrin Vernau talks about how companies can support online learning among employees. The recent years have been a fertile time for online learning. It is steadily transforming education, and this phenomenon has now spilled over to businesses. Today many e-learning enrollees are mid-career professionals who want to sharpen specific skills. “Online education has the potential to significantly change the way we learn. Online technologies combined with social media influence demand and supply in the education sector. This gives rise to new business models and new opportunities for life-long learning within the company,” said Dr. Katrin Vernau, a Partner at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. Take, for example, the German software corporation SAP, which recently expanded its massive open online course that formerly focused on software development to now include courses for business learners.
