Last Tuesday, the first Swiss MOOC Factory event took place in Trafo Baden. Around 150 participants took up the invitation from CREALOGIX Digital Learning to exchange views about the future of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) in Switzerland. Thanks to these new learning formats, companies and universities can make training content available to their target groups. The success story of courses from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has shown what potential there is for such solutions in all industries.
Even in this day and age, not everyone has the means to complete education and training. This is why Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) enjoys so much success, predominantly in the USA. Leading educational institutions like the MIT make course contents available to the general public free of charge in web-based learning formats. The topic for the first Swiss MOOC Factory was how the classic concept could be specifically implemented for universities and companies in Switzerland: Over 150 experts from the academic and business arena spoke at the interactive event about the future of online-accessible education and training programmes. “We are really pleased about the great response we have had to our event. It shows that there is a great need for digital learning solutions and MOOC-based formats in Switzerland too,” says Daniel Stoller-Schai, Head of Sales & Account Management at CREALOGIX Digital Learning.
