Keen to capitalise on Saudi’s nascent e-learning market, Element K Middle East is set to unveil a raft of new online courses this week. Also, specifically for those who do not have access to a high-speed internet, the learning provider will release an offline version of its learning management system (LMS).
“We are hoping to reach individuals who might not find the chance to get traditional classroom training,” says Jamil Ezzo, general manager of Element K Middle East.
“Element K is planning to expand its operations in Saudi Arabia this year. As more and more people are becoming IT literate and PC friendly... training through internet-based solutions is increasing,” he adds.
Ezzo says he is keen to use the next five days to target business learners. “Businesses in the region have either migrated online or are in the process of doing so because classroom learning is no longer convenient,” he says.
