McAfee turned its training around that both saved both time and produced more lucrative sales: ...an average of $500,000 per year in sales [attributed to] new training model.


Before Intel giant McAfee revamped its new-hire orientation, ...80 hours long [with] ... 40 hours of pre-work,, 5 days of on-site training, and ...post-...to be completed at home.

    This well-done piece by Jeanne Meister, highlights key elements of how MOOCs can turn around the stultifying aspects of corporate learning, well-illustrated through the McAfee example.

    MOOCs might be just what the corporate L&D world needs to reinvent itself. McAfee appears to be at the leading edge of this change
