Today the company told investors it was launching its “Gooroo Learn” program on Microsoft’s learning platform, which will help talent get “job ready” while completing online courses that come badged with Microsoft certification upon completion.
Gooroo Learn courses include modules for participants to learn everything from data skills in Excel to how to use Skype effectively.
Gooroo chief executive Greg Muller said the rollout of the courses on Open edX would “provide graduates and transitioning workers the opportunity to feel supported and build a successful technology career”.
