Geoffrey Alphonso: Alef Education is prepared to ensure that learning does not stop

Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education.

Alef Education, the leading global K-12 education technology company, announced that it has provided its three digital learning products for all students of the UAE who are looking to continue their education during the current schools shut down. These products will be available through the website learning4all.alefed.com.

The announcement of the "Distance Learning" initiative comes as a number of countries around the world announce the closure of schools due to their fears of the spread of the new coronavirus (Covid-19). The company is looking forward to doing its part to help students during this time of the schools’ shutdown.

Commenting on this initiative, Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education, said: “In a world where the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global education landscape, where more than 120 countries have closed schools impacting over 900 million learners across the globe and growing, Alef Education is doing its part in offering free access across all three of its digital learning products, in line with the distance learning initiative launched by the UAE. These products will be available through the website learning4all.alefed.com”.

“Alef Education is prepared to ensure that learning does not stop, and our offering covers primary and supplementary teaching and learning digital resources from K-9 across a variety of subjects that can be accessed anywhere and anytime”, Alphonso said.

Alef Education, based in Abu Dhabi, has a portfolio of three engaging and interactive learning platforms – Alef Platform, Abjadiyat and Curio – each providing a differentiated learner experience for different market segments.

The core offering for schools is the Alef Platform, which is an award-winning teaching and learning digital learning platform powered by Artificial Intelligence. The Alef Platform contains all the lessons that students need in line with the UAE Ministry of Education curriculum, created by our team of international experts.

All core curriculum subjects for Grades 5 to 9 are included in the Platform: English, Math, Science, Arabic, Social Studies and Islamic Studies.
