According to e-Literate on August 31, "Coursera is making a big shift to corporate workforce development as described by CEO Rick Levin on the company blog this morning." But is this a pivot or an expansion? According to what I heard at the MOOC conference over the weekend, it may be more of the latter. Phil Hill argues it's a pivot, though, based on "the subtle shift in the description of their vision... The original vision was disrupting 'education', not 'learning experiences'. The idea was that higher education needed broader access and a new approach. The result might or might not have included a degree, but the idea was to change postsecondary education."
