A CHANGING SOCIETY
SWISS LEARNING EXCHANGE
A BUSINESS MODEL FOR ONLINE EDUCATION
"Thanks to new technologies, we have the tools to completely revolutionize the learning experience”, explains Satyadeep Rajan excitedly. The President of Swiss Learning Exchange (SLX) has called on the Swiss education community to “embrace digitization as a means to export it expertise”. While he admits that MOOC (massive open online courses), which a growing number of education providers now offer, are “amazing initiatives”, Rajan and SLX want to go one step further. So, what exactly do they want to do? “Monetize content based on public-private partnerships.” Together with the Fribourg School of Management (HEG), the company that is based at the blueFACTORY has developed a CAS (certificate of advanced studies) in business analytics for managers. This module, launched in spring 2017, teaches company management – particularly in SMEs – how best to incorporate data analysis findings into their decision-making processes. SLX has also recently announced partnerships with the Universities of Fribourg and St. Gallen.
