Santa Clara University Offers Business Ethics MOOC
Santa Clara University is offering a business ethics class through learning management company Instructure's new massive open online course (MOOC) platform, Canvas.net. The class marks Santa Clara University's first foray into the world of open online education.
Since their explosion into the world of online education about one-year-ago MOOCs have typically focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics courses, however Santa Clara's "Business Ethics for the Real World" is designed to explore the ethical dilemmas that confront professionals on a daily basis.
While the class will include a dash of ethical theory, prior knowledge of business ethics is not required to register. Enrollment will be limited to 500 people for the first course with classes running from Feb. 25 to March 25.
