eCornell Launches a Subscription Learning Service for Busy Professionals

Cornell has launched an interesting online learning initiative called “WebSeries”, a paid service that consists of one-hour long lectures providing “easy, bite-sized samples of experts and topics”.

The target audience is busy working professionals who do not have time for a full course or certificate program but want to stay informed on the latest research and stay connected with Cornell’s thought leaders.

Users can subscribe to a channel at $39 per month or $279 per year, according to the eCornell website.

ECornell – Cornell’s online education department – currently offers over 30 certificate programs for professional development.
