Building Online Learning Courses: University vs. Corporate


Brian Runo shares a quick comparison of the differences in creating online learning courses for universities versus corporations in this episode of MarketScale’s Online Learning Minute. There are a few main differences that make online learning much simpler to execute for corporations.

First, university online learning courses can take months or even years to complete. For corporate courses, the turnaround time can be as little as one month. Second, university courses have various types of learners to appeal to, while corporate training is typically geared toward employees. Third, university online courses last several weeks to an entire semester and cover a broad topic. Corporate training is much shorter and more specific to processes and workflows.

For companies that thought online course creation was too complicated, it’s easy to see that it’s much easier and more conducive in corporate environments. He said, “Just go out and produce it!”
