Why MOOCs Might Revolutionize Your Recruiting Methods

One MOOC provider, Udacity, also offers a program where recruiters can access student resumes. According to Bersin, Over 350 firms, including Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Twitter have paid Udacity and Coursera to match them with high-performing students.

Most of the courses have online forums where students engage in conversation. An enterprising recruiter can use these as a way meet candidates and assess their skills. Some of these participants will be recent grads with little experience but who are fast, motivated learners. If you can get your hiring managers to take part, they might be attracted to one or more of them.
