Thanks to advances in technology, education is within reach of anyone, wherever they are in the world. This means that obstacles that made learning difficult before are no longer in the way of individuals pursuing their dreams and taking leaps in their careers and goals. At the recent eLearning Africa Conference, Alison, along with many other delegates came together to discuss and share ideas around how education is making a difference in people’s lives. We met some of the graduates and heard from them how Alison is changing lives through eLearning in Uganda.
Akol is a student at Makerere University. He learned about Alison through a friend in Nigeria who told him that it’s a way for him to achieve his dreams. He enrolled in the Maritime Logistics course which helped his knowledge and understanding of management and enriched his current studies in varsity. He encourages those at home without funds to study further to enrol in Alison – any course – and study with the convenience of being at home.
Sadres is a Records and Information Manager and works for the Uganda National Authority. She discovered Alison during the covid-19 after data laws came into effect. She decided to study to equip herself through the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) course to better understand what the law says about data information and its protection. Through this, Sadres is now at the forefront of sensitising data protection in her organisation.
