January 16, 2015– Over the last two months, our team of Turkish translators have worked tremendously hard to translate more than one hundred videos for Turkcell’s public learning Academy. We are both proud and very excited to see the launch of Turkcell Academy’s Innovators MBA- a Comprehensive massive open online course (MOOC), in partnership with MIT, for Entrepreneurs around the World.
“Innovators’ MBA” will be available on edX in English and in Turkish and consists of 4 modules- Enterpreneurship 101, Entrepreneurship 102, User Entrepreneurship and Big Data for Entrepreneurs. Best of all, the videos are free for anyone who wishes to follow the program. Participants will receive MITx certificates upon successful completion of each module.
This is the first corporate collaboration for MITx, the MOOC program under MIT’s Office of Digital Learning, and the first time that a MOOC in Turkish appears on the edX platform.
“For millions of people, mobile and online education opens up new lanes of accessing global knowledge. With this program, cutting-edge thinking on innovation and entrepreneurship will reach thousands of people all around the world, including in our home country, Turkey” said Turkcell’s CEO Sureyya Ciliv. “We are proud to carry our strategic collaboration with MIT to a new level with this program which focuses on two issues that are so central to Turkcell’s identity – innovation and entrepreneurship.”
Turkcell Academy was relaunched as a public, digital platform on January 14th, 2014. Over the course of its first year, the website has received 5 million visits from 1.5 million visitors. More than 2000 videos currently available on the website are prepared with the cooperation of leading Turkish and international content providers.
Globalme continuously works in collaboration with Turkcell to make expert knowledge and self-education available to the Turkish market on different platforms, including Coursera.
