Crossing the Chasm – How MOOCs will eventually invade the Enterprise

In November 2011, I wrote about crowdsourced learning models in an enterprise, while reviewing Udemy, in one of my blog posts. Guess what, it seems Udemy has actually read my blog!

I recently stumbled on a video from CLO Magazine. In an interview with CLO Media, Dennis Yang of Udemy talks about the private, white-labeled offering from Udemy for enterprises. Now enterprises can create their very own branded online content delivery platform within a “walled” section of Udemy. He also talks about the flexibility the platform offers when it comes to content curation and discovery of content (in other words allows employees to create content and access content relevant for their roles). According to Yang, Udemy allows organizations to effectively use their own IP and in capturing subject matter expertise through Udemy’s course creation capabilities.

Check out this short video.

What would be interesting is when enterprises using platforms like Udemy allow certain “vetted” courses from the public domain be made available to their employees. Just one more way platforms like Udemy can make more money!

I rest my case:)
