Tech@Work MOOC - Turin Centre

The Tech@Work MOOC aims to ignite a conversation about how emerging technology will change the nature of work and the workplace, and its increasingly impact the economy and society. While technology has always played a significant role in modernizing the workplace, the speed and magnitude of technological advancement and innovation today is far greater than ever before.

In the last decade or so, the proliferation of mega digital corporations such as Facebook, Skype, Youtube, Alibaba and new technologies such as smartphones, robotics, drones, 3D printing, cloud computing, and development of superintelligence are transforming the world of work. These changes are profoundly altering the world of work and there are recurring concerns that new technology will replace workers, putting jobs at risk in an increasingly networked society and digitalized economy.

This proposal lays out a plan to develop a 6-week online MOOC with 6 modules divided into three phases on the impacts of technology at work. The course will discuss the latest technological and labour trends.  

Phases

The first phase is designed to introduce participants to the eCampus virtual environment. Participants will be provided the tools and tips on how to succeed as an e-learner.

2. Exploration:
