Resources for Workforce Learning
The COVID-19 Pandemic has created turmoil for people and organizations around the world. Millions are out of work, and millions more are quarantined at home. Yet, as the tragedy continues, people who have lost their jobs can gain valuable skills through online learning. And companies can help their workers use their time at home to engage in remote learning.
Beyond today’s crisis, the need to gain new skills never stops. New graduates may need additional skills to get good jobs. Once employed, they will need to learn new skills many times during a 40 or 50 year career. Technologies change, job requirements change, companies change their employment mix, or workers decide to change occupations. All of these forces require workers gain new skills rapidly.
MIT and Open Learning have developed a variety of courses, tools, research, and collaborations that can give workers the right skills, at the right time, in the right way – at scale, as well as tools for business leaders to be able to rapidly adapt to ever changing needs.
