Since its launch last year, openSAP has gained terrific momentum. The offerings they provide via the massive open online course (MOOC) model have been embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are hungry for SAP innovation knowledge. SAP Education has been working in close collaboration with the openSAP team to make our offerings available to its participants as the next step for their learning journey after they have acquired their baseline knowledge. In addition, SAP Education has been working to include openSAP offerings in its curriculum as a starting point for people who might ultimately go for certification.
As global head of SAP Education Markus Schwarz said in an interview held at SAP TechEd 2013: “Education is a really exciting topic these days, because we’ve seen all the advances in technology that allow us to be much more creative in reaching many more people than ever before. MOOCs, electronic learning, online learning - - this is a huge opportunity… you can reach hundreds of thousands of people with your courseware, so there is no limitation as in a classroom with numbers of seats…people can register for a course without having to go through special procedures to have access to the knowledge.”
