Understanding the need
Around the world, learning is increasingly online or blended (part in-person, part virtual). Whether it is formal education, life and job-skills training or professional or personal development, people around the world seek timely, high-quality learning to expand their knowledge and skills.
More and more, for reasons of economics, logistics, access or simply ease and familiarity of use – learners are getting their learning on the go, through computers and mobile devices. The need and hunger for learning and capacity development is great.
There are 58 million teachers globally who need to continuously update their skills – including skills for utilizing technology in their classrooms – and a worldwide need for another 10 to 35 million trained teachers. Around the world, 357 million youth are out-of-work or out-of school. And, a growing cadre of 1 to 2 million development assistance professionals are working to help bring the world's billion poorest out of poverty. The need is greater than ever to connect "people in development" to resources that can build their capacities.
