Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
Intrepid Learning today announced its Intrepid Agile Corporate MOOC™ solution, becoming the first provider to offer a complete MOOC (massive open online course) solution for corporations. Intrepid Agile Corporate MOOC™ enables organizations to achieve critical business results through innovative learning programs.
Academic MOOCs have gained popularity in recent years. Educational companies such as Coursera, Udacity, and EdX have demonstrated the value of offering world-class higher education courses to a global audience at no (or low) cost using modern cloud-based delivery tools. Intrepid Learning helps companies apply this disruptive technology-enabled learning model within the corporate space.
The Intrepid Agile Corporate MOOC™ solution provides active learning experiences that aim to bridge knowledge gaps or sharpen practical skills that can be applied on the job. “Corporate MOOCs can effectively address various business initiatives such as educating prospects, customers and partners globally, developing and sourcing scarce talent, and enhancing workforce performance and collaboration through learning programs at scale within an enterprise,” said Sanjay Advani, Intrepid Learning’s Vice President of Marketing and Alliances.
Intrepid Learning's Intrepid Agile Corporate MOOC™ solution is built on the award-winning Intrepid AgileTM platform. The technology delivers an integrated and collaborative learning experience to your computer or on the go via mobile device. Unique features include easy access to short-form rich-media content via flexible learning paths, gamification, badging, social and collaborative tools, and practical learning challenges (“missions”) that challenge learners to apply skills in real-world settings. Intrepid Learning’s holistic solution includes services to enable client success such as strategy, course design and development, and ongoing learner success services.
Intrepid Learning is a pioneer in the corporate MOOC space. "We are the first company to offer a corporate MOOC solution uniquely tailored to the specific needs of businesses," said Sam Herring, Intrepid Learning’s Founder and CEO. “Corporate MOOCs are a natural extension of our core competency, and we are excited to lead the market with this disruptive technology-enabled learning innovation.
