A man who teaches online courses for a living is now trying to reinvent the way he teaches courses.
Itil is looking to add a degree-level course in IT to its online curriculum.
It will start in January with a focus on virtual teaching and a curriculum for new IT graduates.
It’s an ambitious move for an organisation that has struggled to find a path to the digital marketplace.
It has not been easy.
ItIL has struggled with its finances since the collapse of its last venture, which folded in 2016.
The company lost $1 billion in 2015 and 2016.
The IT division of a Swiss company with roots in Europe has been the subject of investigations by the Financial Conduct Authority, the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators.
Last year, ITIL said it had $13.8 billion in assets, including $3.5 billion in cash.
The next year, the company said it was worth $15.5 million.
The company’s latest announcement on its website is an attempt to rebrand itself and try to regain investor interest.
“In the last few months, we have learned that we have the opportunity to reinvent and re-focus ourselves and rebrand the business,” the company says.
It says it has spent $50 million since 2015 to launch a new IT education business and is investing another $40 million in IT in 2018.
The focus on IT in its online offering is part of a wider strategy to re-energise the company, said itil’s co-founder, Christian van der Sluijs.
“The first step was to create a business and we are now at the point where we are looking to rewire our company and reorganise and reintegrate IT into the business so that we can take full advantage of this opportunity,” he said.
It said it wants to reestablish itself as a global provider of IT training.
“We are going to start to introduce more courses in the near future,” it said.
The company also has a focus in healthcare.
It has created a new certification in IT for health care professionals.
It says its IT graduates have a range of career paths and that the number of IT graduates in the US is expected to rise to nearly one million by 2025.
It hopes to expand its training in healthcare and education to more sectors, such as healthcare and security.
