Businessweek.com, 21 February 2014

This week HEC Paris became the first French Business School to launch a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), with 30,000 participants registered its debut course, "Understanding Europe". HEC plans to roll out six more MOOCs this year; the second, "Evaluation Financiere de l’Entreprise"  will go live on March 4th. About 30% of participants enrolled for this second MOOC are French, with the remaining participants coming from African nations and the developping world.  Project director of MOOCs at HEC, Vanessa Klein, explains that "MOOCs are a good way to learn how to teach online and experiment with blended courses, as well as demonstrate our expertise all over the world."
