Comments on: TED, Khan Academy, MOOCs and social learning at work http://adigaskell.org/2012/11/05/ted-khan-academy-moocs-and-social-learning-at-work/ Bringing the world of social business to you Sun, 06 Jul 2014 13:28:27 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 By: Roger Power http://adigaskell.org/2012/11/05/ted-khan-academy-moocs-and-social-learning-at-work/#comment-39791 Thu, 13 Jun 2013 10:43:48 +0000 http://www.adigaskell.org/blog/?p=2137#comment-39791 I think a company should take a proactive view on training and provide valuable, relevant training to employees as opposed to providing training as a means of paying lip service to it. If employees are given training that will give them added value to doing their jobs and make future opportunities more attainable then surely they would approach that training with gusto. If the training is online and more accessible, all the better.

We have to remember though that the idea of the majority going to university is a relatively recent one. With student debt being as large as it is, the question remains whether this ideal is indeed sustainable.

Online education is poised to bridge the unsurmountable financial hurdle that many now face.
