Wonderful to hear :) As others have said, I'm not sure there is a downside to offering employees such great free educational opportunities.

I urge them " their students should attend these new online courses and university should assess later and award credits too ."

But nobody question the quality of MIT or Harvard or Stanford.
Since it is free manager just grab it .
It is a free service from my side too . How much they learn I do not know, but when I meet them personelly they thank by millions .
Good managers continue to learn . I say learn from cradle to grave .

Therefore I send to all 500 executives of Turkey all the infornation about MOOCs free .
Particularly MIT, Harvard, Stanford .

Maybe something executives should start to look at.

I think he's being a little hasty to write off MOOCs so quickly. Anything that generates that level of interest has to be taken seriously.
