We’re thrilled to sponsor AIESEC Indonesia by providing OpenLearning for free to AIESEC’s members across over 30 universities in Indonesia.
AIESEC’s press release follows.
“At AIESEC we believe that the key to developing student potential is providing widespread access to high quality education. We ensure that our members have a solid foundation of practical and adaptable training that they can take with them to internships and opportunities all over the world. Since AIESEC is a global and diverse organisation with bases in fourteen cities in Indonesia, we are exploring avenues of accessible online education. In March 2014 we signed a partnership with OpenLearning, Australia’s leading online learning platform, who have agreed to provide their platform for free to all our members.”
“As a company, OpenLearning understands that education plays an important role in developing talented and capable students. OpenLearning’s innovative and dynamic platform enables anyone in the world to teach high quality and engaging courses, helping students to form fulfilling communities regardless of culture or location. OpenLearning is looking to increase their presence in South-East Asia, adding to their existing partnerships with leading universities in Australia and Malaysia, Fortune 500 companies, and independent teachers worldwide.”
“By partnering with OpenLearning, AIESEC hopes to open up new opportunities for students and teachers all over the country. Online education is new to Indonesia, and yet because of our large percentage of Internet users we believe that online learning can provide a promising solution to the problem of education inaccessibility. We hope that our partnership with OpenLearning will deliver education solutions not only to AIESEC but to people and organisations all over Indonesia.”
