IMPORTANT, FREE ONLINE MEETING ON MEGA-CLASSES & BUSINESS

 

Wednesday, February 27 at 9:30 am Pacific time

Topic: Business+MOOCs

Location: Google+ Hangout on Air internettime.com/mooc/

 

Can Massive Courses re-skill managers and workers?

Courses for hundreds of thousands of workers at a crack might change the equation. Then again, they might not. Join this 60-minute conversation to decide where you stand.

MIT and Harvard founded edX to educate the world for free. 400,000 people signed up for a MOOC (course) on artificial intelligence. Don’t think Harvard Business School and Stanford Graduate School of Business have failed to notice.

Training departments face the same fate as local bookstores and record shops. Disruptive innovation is afoot. Lifelong learning is necessary and now we have the vehicle for it.

Participants include rock stars George Siemens, Curt Bonk, Stephen Downes, Coursera, Mark Finnern, Dave Cormier, Terri Griffith, Clark Quinn, the Center for Creative Leadership, Jerry Michalski, Jos Arets, and Jay Cross.

The Learning Community of Google+ is hosting the session. The conversation will be streamed on YouTube.
