It is a MOOC or massive online course; SAP wants to reach a massive audience

It is a channel to promote products and also promote knowledge.

Name is open as it is free of charge

Platform is open.sap.com

SAP is one of the first do this in an enterprise format as it provides a classroom-like format.

People can interact with others and SAP in the online discussion forum.

It is mobile-ready – it can be used with tablets, smart phones.

It is unrestricted, open to anyone, no limit on participants

Platform performance is good

Motivational format is there as deadlines need to be met on a weekly basis with assignments

At the end of each course there is a record of achievement earned through the weekly assignment and the final assessment.  This is graded.
