MOOC watch: Coursera builds links to companies - Tim Dodd, Financial Review

US massive open online course provider Coursera is creating closer ties with employers, aiming to set up a network of companies which will help fund new courses as well as offering industry expertise, specialist guest lecturers and student case studies. Coursera promises companies that join the scheme, called the Global Skills Initiative, that they will "receive visible branding throughout the course, learner survey and performance data, and course materials for employee training". Coursera also says it will give companies access to the top performers in the course "to expand their hiring pools". http://www.afr.com/technology/apps/education/mooc-watch-coursera-builds-links-to-companies-20150806-giti2u
