eCornell Launches WebSeries: Live Events with Cornell University Faculty

eCornell, the online learning unit at Cornell University, has launched WebSeries, a monthly subscription to online events that feature presentations and interactive discussions led by Cornell University faculty and industry experts.

WebSeries is the latest addition to a broad portfolio of online professional courses and certificate programs from Cornell University. These live one-hour online events provide working professionals and lifelong learners with access to world-class instruction, timely research and practical guidance from experts at Cornell University.

“We’re excited to connect people around the world to useful and relevant insights from Cornell faculty in a new online format that truly supports lifelong learning.”
– Paul Krause, eCornell’s CEO and Associate Vice Provost of Online Learning for Cornell University

eCornell’s current WebSeries Channels include Entrepreneurship, Human Resources, and Women in Leadership, all with live and recorded events applicable toward earning CEUs. Several additional channels will be launched over the coming months, including Hospitality, Leadership, and Marketing.

Recently in the Women in Leadership Channel, ILR School’s Assistant Professor Allison Elias led a WebCast on “Do Women Lead Differently? Should They Lead Differently?” with real actionable advice to those who experience unconscious bias and stereotyping in the workplace. As you’ll see in this clip from the event, Channel subscribers were able to ask Professor Elias questions directly in eCornell’s virtual environment while engaging with other attendees in a chatroom discussion simultaneously.

“We are proud to launch our new WebSeries subscriptions, enabling people everywhere to have direct access to the brightest minds at Cornell University.”– Sally Berkowitz, eCornell’s Product Manager

Subscriptions are available per channel at $39/month and $279/year.  Excerpts from recent and upcoming events can be viewed at
