There’s nothing like the buzz of activity that happens across the show floor during SAP TechEd events, which is one reason why the SAP TechEd Live interview series has been a popular mainstay for several years. Whether you’re on site and just passing the broadcast area or watching live online, it’s a great way to share in the excitement of the event while hearing SAP experts – be they SAP executives, employees, customers, or partners – weigh in on the latest innovations in the market as well as within SAP.
One of the featured guests for the series at SAP TechEd Las Vegas 2013 was Markus Schwarz, Senior Vice President and Global Head of SAP Education. Markus was interviewed by Mark Finnern, Chief Community Evangelist, SAP Mentor “herder” and recently dubbed (much to his bemusement) as the “Godfather of SCN”.
The theme of the interview was “From Mobile to MOOCs: The Flexible Learning Revolution”, and in the lively 17-minute discussion that followed, Markus covered a wide range of topics: from the growing popularity of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and SAP’s response to this trend to the ways in which people are consuming learning content on tablets and other devices, as well as such positive changes to SAP’s certification program as crowd sourcing to create a larger pool of questions from the certified community.
Watch the replay on the SAP TechEd Online platform: From Mobile to MOOCs: The Flexible Learning Revolution.
