Startup

Which cloud platform do you use to run your business or startup?

The organization I manage during the day uses Sohnar TRAFFIC for managing our work flow, resourcing, etc. We are a project based company and after reviewing over 200 possible products on offer this one best addressed our needs.

Personally in my own business I use BaseCamp. I find it's interface is allot more intuitive to use and clients have no problem navigating around. BaseCamp does not include time sheeting which is why it was not adopted by Cadre (my employer). Timesheets/project tracking are core to our business.

Hope this helps.

How do you find MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) as a source of business learning?

Great question Ling!

With MOOCs it does entirely depend on the quality of the course you choose to complete as to whether it will be of  benefit in growing your business. There was a great article I read recently which may help you as well; http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140206171216-17970806-the-best-mooc-course-for-entrepreneurs

Ultimately, like all things, you will get out of it what you put into it.
