Tenaris, the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of steel, has adopted the Open edx software to enhance their existing training programs.
By developing blended learning models and migrating some existing training courses online, this company will deliver an improved training system to nearly 27,000 employees worldwide through its own Tenaris University.
The xConsortium university partners will develop courses specifically designed for Tenaris’ employees. They will also license specific edX courses to use in their training programs around the world.
“This partnership with edX is particularly exciting because introducing the most technologically advanced methods of education is part of our goal to continuously improve and innovate in the training of our people,” said Paolo Rocca, Tenaris Chairman and CEO.
The edX Consortium has also customized premium course packages for the International Monetary Fund.
