MONTREAL, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - HEC Montréal is proud to launch
its new EDUlib program, a platform offering free online university-level courses to
the general public in different management disciplines.
Two new courses are available this year: the first one - Gestion des conflits - will start on October 28. The other new course, L'esprit entrepreneurial, will be offered in the winter. The Introduction au marketing course will also be repeated next spring. Short videos on the EDUlib site present the three courses, and enrolment is now open.
The EDUlib courses were all designed specifically for the site and are taught by
HEC Montréal professors. Courses are taken from home but participants
are encouraged to share their comments or post questions on a
discussion forum, and take regular tests - if they pass, they will
receive an attestation that they have successfully completed the course
requirements. Students in the EDUlib courses, which each run for six weeks, will not receive any university
credits or diploma, however.
The first edition of EDUlib proved highly popular: since it was launched in October 2012, the site
has been visited nearly 250,000 times by over 71,000 people from 155
countries. Some 15,000 students enrolled in the three courses offered
in 2012-2013 - Introduction au marketing, Comprendre les états financiers and Problèmes et politiques économiques. After Canada, most participants came from Haiti, France and North
"HEC Montréal is delighted, for the second straight year, to be sharing
our expertise and research work through the EDUlib site with the entire world," said Jean Talbot, Full Professor and
Director of the Learning and Teaching Innovation Centre, at the new EDUlib program launch. "This platform, unique in Quebec, allows us to offer
everyone access to top-quality management courses. We can now consider
EDUlib one of the services that the School provides for the community, just as
it has always made its vast library holdings available to the public."
