Abstract: MOOCs are an emerging trend in the field of professional learning and development. This chapter introduces openSAP, the MOOC offering of SAP SE, as a major example of an Enterprise MOOC provider. In order to gain insights on MOOCs in professional learning, five openSAP courses with a total sample of n = 9994 have been surveyed in an exploratory study. Participation in terms of participants’ characteristics and intentions as well as actual achievement has been analyzed. Results indicate that Enterprise MOOCs can be a valuable tool for professional learning on a global scale. However, current usage does not necessarily focus on digital workplace learning. Moreover, Enterprise MOOCs seem to call for alternative perspectives on measuring achievement. Implications for future research are discussed.
