    Intrepid Learning is offering a free MOOC on MOOCs - genius!

    Start Date: June 9, 2014
    End Date: June 30, 2014
    Duration: 3 weeks
    Cost: FREE!

    As learning professionals, we’ve struggled to make sense of how to leverage new technologies to create an integrated, effective learning experience – versus a dizzying array of disconnected technology point solutions. How do we create learning experiences that seamlessly integrate the power of these technology trends?

    Enter the corporate MOOC.

    Our “MOOC on Corporate MOOCs” is a three-week course that introduces learning professionals to the power of a MOOC in order to meet a company’s learning needs. Whether for internal company use or customer facing training, the MOOC on Corporate MOOCs provides participants with a high level overview of corporate MOOCs and what it can achieve.

    At the end of this three week experience, participants will be empowered with:

    • The knowledge to be a learning professional educated and enthusiastic about the prospect of using a MOOC in their organization.
    • A business plan that will help a learning professional communicate to organizational colleagues and leadership about a MOOC strategy, and the importance of the MOOC to their current training initiatives.

    Sign up today!

    F.A.Q.

    Q: How does this “MOOC” work?
    A: The course will launch with a live webinar (although you don’t have to attend if you can’t make it) on June 9, 2014 (time TBD). After the webinar, you are free to explore each week’s course materials at your own pace. Each week, new course materials and learning activities will become available for you to complete until the end of the three week period.

    Q: How much time will I need to commit?
    A: Each learning activity is designed to be completed in under 15 minutes. Total estimated time commitment for week one is 3-hours, week two is 1.5-hours, and week three is 2-hours.

    Q: How much does this cost?
    A: It’s free!
