The Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company, du, has signed a partnership agreement with Hamdan bin Mohammed e-University and Global Learning to provide its Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) customers with access to Cloud Campus.
Osman Sultan, CEO, of du, Dr. Mansoor Al Awar, Chancellor of Hamdan bin Mohammed e-University and Dr. Milad Sebaaly, Managing Director of Global Learning, signed the multi-year partnership during GITEX 2013.
Cloud Campus, an initiative by Hamdan bin Mohammed e-University, allows customers subscribed to du's SME plans to access a variety of sessions through their personal social media accounts on Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.
"It is every organisation's goal to be able to provide training and learning that will improve employees' skills, so that they are ready for whatever the future may hold," said Osman Sultan. "However, this can come at a sizeable cost to businesses - especially for SMEs, where we understand that every dirham must be put to the best use possible. We are therefore proud to partner with Hamdan bin Mohammed e-University and Global Learning, to be able to offer SMEs access to essential training at an affordable cost." "In line with the U.A.E. leaderships' vision of encouraging and supporting SMEs to achieve their full potential, we are pleased to have signed this partnership agreement with du, which will now have access to our accredited online courses to be able to provide themselves, their employees, and their families with learning for life that will boost their potential to succeed in the highly competitive business world," said Dr. Al Awar.
"With Cloud Campus, du is offering SMEs with a flexible and affordable learning experience that offers world class content with local academic support to employees and their families, through a mobile social platform", said Dr. Sebaaly.
For a minimal monthly fee that will be billed directly to their corporate account with du, customers can subscribe online via social media accounts to enroll employees subscribed to du's SME plans.
