openSAP delivers Enterprise MOOCs with a definitive start and end date. The purpose behind these dates is to encourage learners to stay on track, collaborate in the discussion forums, and complete the learning content without getting distracted, resulting in learners never completing the course. In the near future, you will have the option to earn a Record of Achievement in self-paced mode, however there will be a fee attached to this option (~€39).
Why are we charging? To encourage learners to continue joining the scheduled courses for free. If learners can earn a Record of Achievement for free at any time, our MOOCs would become like any other e-learning and it would rarely be completed. openSAP as it is today will remain free of charge, including accessing in learning content in self-paced mode. The fee is only applied if you want to earn a Record of Achievement in self-paced mode. You can find more information in our openSAP, course reactivation FAQs.
openSAP’s business is to share free knowledge about SAP’s innovations in MOOC format and we plan to continue free delivery into the future.
