OK, let's leave aside the fact that 'Corporate MOOC' is essentially an oxymoron. Here are the reasons advanced in support of them:
- Corporate MOOCs will be a pathway to social and informal learning into the workplace.
- Corporate MOOCs are likely to produce a breed of community managers who will be a cross between enterprise community managers and learning experience designers.
- Corporate MOOCs – if done right – have the potential to bridge man of the currently existing organizational silos.
What would really be interesting? Actual corporate MOOCs - that is, a course run by the corporation that is genuinely Open. I'm not sure they're ready for this yet - corporations are still very comncerned about managing the message, even internally. But imagine the sort of real conversation could happen around product and services areas could happen with an actual corporate MOOC.
