Webinar: MOOCs – from Academia to Corporate

• 2 min read


Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have their detractors and their sceptics; while those offering MOOCs are wondering how to ‘monetise’ them – that is, how to make money from the intellectual property that comprises these courses. Nonetheless, MOOCs have shown that they have the potential to disrupt the corporate learning world — in terms of price, technology and even pedagogy.

On November 19 at 10am EST; 3pm GMT, or 4pm CET, join us for a live panel discussion involving four key industry thought leaders on the subject of ‘MOOCs: from Academia to Corporate’.

The panel will discuss: what MOOCs are; different types of MOOC implementation; MOOCs within a corporate setting; MOOCs versus curricular education; MOOCs versus e-learning courses; identifying the hype about MOOCs; exploring the future of learning – and discussing MOOCs’ part in it.

The members of this thought leaders’ panel are:

  • John Leh, the CEO and Lead Analyst at Talented Learning. He has some 18 years’ experience of the online learning sector.
  • Dr Mike Orey, has been an Associate Professor at the University of Georgia since 1989. He’s a teacher, researcher, designer, developer and a visionary focused on meeting the needs of today’s learners.
  • Aaron Silvers, a designer, technologist and strategist responsible for helping to bring into being learning technologies – notably SCORM and Experience API (otherwise known as ‘Tin Can’).
  • Erica LeBlanc, the Operations Development Manager for the IP & Science Business at Thomson Reuters, where she manages a team of instructional designers focusing on the creation and delivery of customised sales training courses.

This webinar will last no longer than 60 minutes and all those who register will be able to access a copy of the recording after the event!
