Interview ALISON CEO, Mike Feerick on how online courses can be used to prevent recidivism

Discussion in 'Life-changing experiences of learning with MOOCs' started by Carolyn, Mar 18, 2016.

    A recent court case in New York saw a young defendant on trial for drug related offences avoiding jail by being ordered to complete free online business courses on ALISON - an online learning platform based in Galway, Ireland, that provides free certified courses in workplace skills.

    CEO Mike Feerick talks about this case and the use of online courses as an alternative correctional method to prevent recidivism.
