Research from Future Workplace shows that despite the fact nearly half of organisations are interested in curating or creating Massive Open Online Courses (#moocs), L&D teams are the ones most resistant to using them.
- Training staff (44%)
- IT department (32%)
- Line of business executives (31%)
- Employees (25%)
- HR (18%)
Jeanne Meister, a partner at Future Workplace and co-author of the book The 2020 Workplace: How Innovative Companies Attract, Develop, and Keep Tomorrow’s Employees Today, said: “While Corporate Learning staff are not the only resistors their reluctance to experiment with a new model for designing and delivering online learning may be a function of several factors ranging from lack of knowledge of the MOOC model, inability to identify a pilot a new offering or lack of executive support to create a prototype.
The research showed that other barriers to organisations experimenting with MOOCs included lack of budget, technical and security issues as well a lack of MOOC design skills amongst L&D teams.
