Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 marzo 2019

NEW YORK (PRWEB) Digitalization and job automation have created a skills gap. Employers globally cannot find the workers they need to build their companies. Traditional colleges and universities are not revolutionizing education fast enough to close the knowledge and skills gaps. EdX, an online learning platform which offers over 2000 online courses from more than 150 education institutions to over 17.6 million people, is trying to address the issues by making education accessible, affordable and relevant to workplace needs. CEO Anant Agarwal explains to C.M. Rubin, founder of CMRubinWorld, that some of the most popular subject areas on edX are “data science; computer science and engineering; and business and management.” Agarwal’s platform allows learners to upskill while they are on the job. He states that in a rapidly changing increasingly connected world, “consumers expect to have anything they want available at their fingertips, and education is no different.” Online learning must be flexible and high quality, offering “a hybrid set of skills” that is “increasingly sought out by hiring managers.” Prof. Anant Agarwal, Ph.D. has been the Chief Executive Officer of edX since March 2013 and serves as its Director. Prof. Agarwal is a Co-founder of Tilera Corporation and served as its Chief Technology Officer. He is a Founder of InCert Software Corporation.
CMRubinWorld’s award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, brings together distinguished thought leaders in education and innovation from around the world to explore the key learning issues faced by most nations. The series has become a highly visible platform for global discourse on 21st-century learning, offering a diverse range of innovative ideas which are presented by the series founder, C. M. Rubin, together with the world’s leading thinkers. font: CMRubinWorld by David Wine)
