MOOCs for Corporate Learning: Do Completions Matter?
When it comes to training, one of the most common methods for measuring impact is the completion rate. However, MOOCs are different types of courses and have historically low completions. Does this mean they are less effective for sharing knowledge within the organization? In this blog post, Ben Eubanks explores how one organization measures MOOC impact, and it doesn’t involve completion rates.
Keeping Up on Time and Wage Compliance: Easier than it Sounds
Principal Workforce Analyst Cliff Stevenson attended KronosWorks, and wage and compliance were both hot topics at the event.
