Learning Milestone of completing 50+ Record Of Achievements(ROA) from openSAP MOOC itself.
Though I’ve enrolled many more MOOCs like Coursera, EdX, Udemy, Udacity, etc and track these MOOCs using Class-central MOOC aggregator tool (https://www.class-central.com/), My Completion and Success Rate is relatively high in openSAP.
The journey started in 2013 when I got an email from my Competency Manager at PwC India regarding openSAP enrollment. Thanks to him for driving Social Learning !!

Being a SAP Human Capital Management and SuccessFactor Consultant with ABAP, the courses offered by openSAP were not directly related to my Job profile. However, I enrolled for the 1st openSAP Course on “Introduction to Mobile Solution Development for the Enterprise” to add some extra skills . The course content was so engaging, you won’t believe I completed it successfully with 86% and below Record of Achievement. Even I laminated those Colorful Certificates and reviewed them periodically to boost my Confidence Level !!!

openSAP MOOC courses are very much interactive. Prototype Challenges really give you feeling working in a Virtual Lab. Thanks to content strategy team. Everytime you get a notification/alert for your upcoming deadlines.
Online discussion forums deepened my understanding of the content and provided helpful information. It’s powered by Google Hangout, Etherpad white board , real-time Collaboration . I’ve created multiple groups to drive openSAP for my team in Deloitte, Alumni group from my University Biju Patnaik University of Technology (http://www.bput.ac.in/), Manipal University, my College National Institute of Science & Technology(http://www.nist.edu/) – a SAP University Alliance Partner, Local Community forums for openSAP
The most delightful surprise in openSAP is the diverse group of peers in my courses. It was fascinating to hear the different perspectives of peers from various geographies like Germany, Canada, USA, UAE, Belgium, India, etc and learn about the challenges they encounter in every course Learning Journey !! As I recollect my School Days in India, Sanskrit Teacher used to quote a phrase “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” which mean “The World is a Family” , today I have the same feeling while learning in a diverse group at openSAP

I valued the flexibility of my MOOC experience more than anything else. Busy professionals want on-demand learning experiences that can be accessed at their own convenience. I watched video lectures on my mobile while I travel in a metro , flight, or while cooking dinner.
When I had a few minutes, I knew I could fit in a short video lecture downloaded earlier for offline view or read a bit of an online Collaboration Room discussion. I could do only a little at a time and still make progress, without disrupting my otherwise busy schedule.
No matter what device I used Laptop/iPad or Smartphone, I could tell where I left off in the coursework. When traveling for work, I could squeeze in a few lectures or discussions using my smartphone while waiting to board a plane using openSAP Android App with 4.4 rating in Google Play store.

9.Free of Cost:
openSAP MOOCs are free unless, like me, you missed any past course and want to activate the Certification at a nominal cost.
10.The full spectrum of learning:
openSAP MOOCs not only limited to SAP itself. We crossed mountains and rivers altogether in spreading our innovations in Learning.
