EDC Partners With HP On Expanded E-Learning Program For Entrepreneurs, Small Business Owners

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) offers free IT and business skills for users globally

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the many people around the world who are miles away from the expertise and resources they need to start or upgrade a small business, an online training program offers the very latest in practical IT and business skills. The HP LIFE e-Learning program, developed by EDC and HP together with a team of partners, includes free, interactive online courses to help budding entrepreneurs create, establish, and grow successful businesses. The program is being widely disseminated in time for Global Entrepreneurship Week, November 12–16.

"The HP LIFE e-Learning program is an innovative and interactive program that helps entrepreneurs solve business challenges with technology solutions," said EDC's Rebecca Stoeckle. "Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, such as this one are changing expectations and opportunities for the more than 75 million unemployed youth around the world. With HP LIFE, high-quality training in business skills is now available globally and for free."

This program's flexible, modular curriculum includes short units covering four main topics:  finance, marketing, operations, and communication. Using self-paced, interactive modules, practical business advice, and discussion boards, HP LIFE e-Learning courses introduce relevant business and IT skills, such as using a spreadsheet to track expenses or social media to market a business. The program includes dramatic narratives of the real-life challenges faced by nascent entrepreneurs in a variety of settings around the world.

Designed for entrepreneurs at any business stage or skill level, the HP LIFE e-Learning program enables learners to receive feedback and advice from members of the HP LIFE community. The course remains dynamic, engaging, and responsive to the emerging concerns of entrepreneurs thanks to new modules that are rolled out every month, peer-to-peer learning, and user-contributed content.
