Coursera, UC San Diego Use MOOCs to Make Workers More Job-Ready - Bruce V. Bigelow, xconomy

After establishing a new office of online education earlier this year, UC San Diego recently unveiled plans to develop massive open online courses—or MOOCs—to better prepare workers for jobs in two specialized tech sectors. Under a “global skills initiative” announced by Mountain View, CA-based Coursera, UC San Diego said it will be working on the classes with Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM), the wireless technologies giant, and San Francisco-based Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK), a big data software developer. Coursera said last week its initiative is intended to provide workers with needed skills in today’s tech economy. http://www.xconomy.com/san-diego/2015/08/10/coursera-uc-san-diego-use-moocs-to-make-workers-more-job-ready/
