Companies have discovered the power of the MOOCs as a new way to design and deliver online learning, where learners become peer reviewers, collaborate with each other, are highly engaged in watching short videos, participate in threaded discussion groups and some arrange local meetups to continue their learning. And for those learners who complete all the assignments, there is the ability to earn a certificate from a university and post this on their LinkedIn LNKD -1.02% profile. The bar for corporate learning has been raised and the revolution there is now just beginning. Large organizations such as Microsoft MSFT and Tenaris are piloting their own custom created MOOCs. Others such as Bank of America BAC and Qualcomm are developing a strategy to curate publicly available MOOCs aligned to their core competencies.
