More options for continuing education

knowledge.pngI’ve mentioned Coursera (and the need for continuing education on this blog before) as a way to take (or at least sit in on) college level coursework from the comfort of your home - e-learning. Now Stanford is placing their online coursework (starting this summer) on a new site, OpenEdX -- the university has announced. It is built on the open-source platform edX that was released earlier this year. This platform is available for use by other universities and educational providers. More on EdX courses are available here

 

I’ve been participated in a number of Coursera courses over the past couple of years and hope these will stand up as well. I'm going to try and take another starting this month on Software defined Networks.

 

It is all part of a shift in the way education is being performed and will likely effect how businesses train for the future.
