BusinessWeek has launched the first in a series of free online video courses, including nine lessons from high-profile financial journalist Gene Marcial on how to invest in the stock market.
Marcial, who currently writes a weekly BusinessWeek column called “Inside Wall Street,” will also pen a stock picking column for BusinessWeek.com starting on May 11, to be updated three times a week.
BusinessWeek.com is using publishing platform MovableType to support the initiative with Feedroom as its video server, editor-in-chief John Byrne wrote in an email to FOLIO:. The title is published by McGraw-Hill, which has an extensive portfolio in the education market.
BusinessWeek’s next course will focus on managing and will feature a well-known executive. BusinessWeek would not disclose the name of the executive nor the anticipated date for the upcoming course.
