Welcome to openSAP Invites! I’m your host, Elisabeth Riemann, and in this episode, we’ve invited Christian Friedl, Senior Lecturer at the Institute of International Management in Graz, Austria to talk to us about the BizMOOC Knowledge Alliance. It was founded in 2016 to enable a European-wide exploitation of the potential of MOOCs (for anyone who’s new to the topic – that’s, Massive Open Online Courses), for the world of business.
We’ll be highlighting the course “Intrapreneurship – Employee-Driven Innovations”, which ran on openSAP between February and March this year. We’ll be talking intrapreneurship, entrepreneurship, and the difference between the two. I’m keen to learn more about his research into learners’ intentions to discover whether MOOCs, like these are entertainment, edutainment, or more? With a bit of luck, I hope we can persuade Chris to share some of his first findings from the course surveys. Let’s see.
