Ooredoo is rolling out its Mobile Academy service, a portal that provides an 'all-you-can-learn” experience across its global footprint.
The service offers more than 50 different courses on a wide variety of subjects, from languages to business skills, all available via mobile phone.
More than 181,000 customers are currently using the service in Qatar, Oman, Iraq, and most recently Kuwait and Indonesia. Plans are also in place to roll-out the service to Tunisia and Algeria shortly.
The cloud-based service also enables them to complete the coursework online at their own pace and submit via their mobile.
In Qatar, the Mobile Academy was launched in partnership with Ooredoo at the 2014 ITU Telecom World event. The services has subsequently been introduced through a partnership with Mobitrans across a range of other markets.
Dr. Nasser Marafih, group CEO at Ooredoo, said: “Ooredoo mobile learning services liberate people’s potential by giving them access to education wherever they are and whenever they want to learn. The dynamic growth in active subscribers over the past six months demonstrates the huge appetite for mobile learning in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia. We’re seeing the incredible impact this service is making on economies and communities as it is introduced, and are excited to be opening new life opportunities for our customers.”
