Digital Transition: Understanding the Collaborative Economy

Start
A major player in MOOC in France, Institut Mines-Télécom is launching its new collection of online courses related to the major transitions in our society: digital, energy and ecological, and productive. First MOOC of this series: "Understanding the collaborative economy", produced in partnership with MAIF.
The objective of MOOC "Understanding the Collaborative Economy" is to help understand why and how the collaborative economy is profoundly transforming the economy and society.
 
Qhat is the collaborative economy? It is an economy based on the sharing or exchange between individuals of goods (cars, housing, parking, drills, etc.), services (carpooling, DIY, etc.), or knowledge (computer courses, learning communities, etc.), with monetary exchange (sale, rental, provision of services) or without monetary exchange (donations, barter, volunteering), through a digital networking platform.
And digital technologies have had a decisive impact in the development of this economy, challenging existing models for both consumers and businesses.

Five weeks to understand the collaborative economy

The objective of MOOC "Understanding the Collaborative Economy" is to help understand why and how the collaborative economy is profoundly transforming the economy and society.
Open to all by definition, this new MOOC is aimed more particularly at executives and managers (companies as well as public authorities). Throughout the course, learners will decipher the collaborative economy through five key reading points: open innovation, consumer actors, new business models, risks and opportunities, and organizational transformation.          
 
This MOOC will take place over five weeks, each of which will require approximately two hours of work. Alternating videos of teachers and experts, quizzes and peer-reviewed practical cases, this MOOC is carried by Télécom Bretagne (Godefroy Dang Nguyen - cf. his interview on the R&I blog), Télécom Ecole de Management (Christine Balagué) and Télécom Saint-Etienne (Jean Pouly).

A collection of MOOCs for understanding the digital transition

Digital technology is profoundly transforming both the daily lives of individuals and the way businesses and organizations operate. But the speed of change means that not everyone necessarily has the time or the conceptual framework to reflect on the challenges of digital technology and to acquire what the Conseil National du Numérique (CNNum) calls "digital literacy". This is why the Institut Mines-Télécom has embarked on a large series of MOOCs that will address not only the collaborative economy but also the influence of digital technology in the transformation of work, health or education.
 
"This course is at the crossroads of our efforts to transmit knowledge to new audiences and the Institut Mines-Télécom's key positioning on the three major transitions in our society. explains Nicolas Sennequier, Director of Digital Pedagogy at the Institute. We bring our systemic vision of the digital transition, there lies our real added value. We will adopt the same approach for the energy transition and the productive transition, which will be the subject of MOOC in the near future. »

MAIF partner of the collaborative economy and MOOC: "Understanding the collaborative economy".

For more than a year, MAIF has been positioning itself in the collaborative economy sector to become today a key player. MAIF believes in solidarity, mutual aid and sharing and is committed to this collaborative society where people trust each other to live together better.
 
"In this respect, MAIF has initiated media partnerships since 2015 with a dozen or so press titles to raise awareness among the general public of the societal changes brought about by the crossover between digital and collaborative technologies. The objective sought through this MOOC is to offer those who wish to do so the opportunity to explore the subject in greater depth". says Philippe TAUVEL, head of MAIF's societal action and institutional communication.
 
By participating in the creation of this MOOC, the Mutual enables as many people as possible to understand the profound changes and challenges of this rapidly changing world, to help build a fairer and more responsible society.
 
Appointment on September 20, 2016 to start this new MOOC.
In the meantime, you can sign up at France Université Numérique.
