What are you doing on July 1? We invite you to join our webinar at 11am CEST on the theme of MOOC accreditation and its relevance to employers.
One of the primary concerns about MOOCs (according to our informal survey) is how to connect accreditation and certification with the needs of employers. This upcoming webinar, organised by the MOOCS for Web Talent Network, will give all interested stakeholders a chance to discuss the latest issues. The webinar will include a round table debate followed by an open discussion. The event is open to all participants. Participants can also send us in advance their questions or suggestions for discussion topics that they would like to address in the webinar. There is already a significant amount of debate on the topic. Get an introduction to the issues with the following articles:
- Accreditation will be central to the success of MOOCs (Financial Times)
- For-credit MOOCs a growing trend (Emerging Edtech)
If you happen to be an HR manager, employer, or someone who is responsible for developing employee skills, you can also participate in this survey on the value of certification for MOOCs.
