From the BBC:
Marks and Spencer is entering the online education market, launching a business course with Leeds University.
Marks and Spencer is among the first retailers to have a Mooc, using the UK-based FutureLearn platform, which was set up by the Open University.
The University of Leeds and Marks and Spencer course will look at examples of business innovation relevant to the retailer, such as the introduction of chilled foods and the development of man-made fibres.
It uses videos, quizzes, interactive polls and live discussion and uses the university’s researchers in design, engineering and business.
It draws on the M&S company archive, with 70,000 items going back to the 1880s, which is now held on the University of Leeds campus.
