Introducing the eLearning Expert Review Panel

OpenSesame is excited to announce our panel of expert course reviewers. In April, we began our search for elearning experts to help analyze our catalog and give us their expert opinions on the libraries of courses in the OpenSesame marketplace. The team we selected reflects experienced perspectives on elearning, from content creation to instructor development. As OpenSesame continues to rapidly expand the world’s marketplace for online learning content, we are confident that our team of reviewers will enable buyers to select the course offerings that are directly relevant to their specific needs. Let’s introduce you to the team!
