Empowering the Deaf community, now with the help of Eliademy

The Betty and Leonard Phillips Deaf Action Center promotes the independence of the deaf, the hard of hearing and the multi-handicapped deaf in Louisiana.  The Center has made a tremendous effort to provide services, support, and advocacy for this population by providing education to the general public, instructing and directing individuals interested in the field of deafness and encouraging leadership among members of the Deaf Community.  It is to this end, the Center eliminates any and all barriers and, in fact, serves as a beacon and source of unity for all persons affected and touched by hearing loss.

Deaf action centerDeaf action center provides multiple services, from Certification, Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) to legal advices. They are using Eliademy and they have been very satisfied with the platform usability, already 4 of their instructors are using Eliademy to deliver courses to the Deaf community of Louisiana, USA.

In a world where a 5% of the total population are disabled with hearing loss (360 million people) we at Eliademy want to support any organization that will provide the means to improve the standard of living of those individuals.

The loveless intelligence is arrogant, Love is a Sine Qua Non condition.

Sine Qua Non

Today we welcome an institute full of love. “Sine Qua Non  from Brasil has a mission to raise individuals substantially diminished by the social circumstances to the human condition of knowing, being and doing – this condition can revoke the verdict of economic misery, intellectual, moral and spiritual force; leading them from the right to be helped to the duty of helpers.

Foster perseverance to those who do not own forces. Provide pathways to those who have no direction to follow. Free final and extensively to those who are the fruit of a reality that makes it impossible to overcome their life circumstances – those who are oppressed and constrained by the current economic models.

Their slogan encapsulates their mission even better: “love as a prerequisite to any genuinely good deed”.

We are proud that they choose Eliademy to support their mission and we would like to congratulate Rafael Monteiro Teixeira Arndt for making his vision a reality.

After reading their values and mission statement, we feel that we need to update our own “Love” pages to be as poetically superior as of the “Sine Qua Non” institute. From organizations like this we get inspired!

Singapore Workforce development agency

WDA was established in 2003 to enhance the competitiveness of the Signaporian workforce by encouraging workers to learn for life and advance with skills. In today’s economy, most jobs require not just knowledge, but also skills.

WDA collaborates with employers, industry associations, the Union and training organisations, to develop and strengthen the Continuing Education and Training (CET) system that is skills-based, open and accessible, as a mainstream pathway for all workers – young and older, from rank and file to professionals and executives – to upgrade and advance in their careers and lives.

For Singapore’s workforce to remain competitive and employable in today’s fast-changing workplace, they must have both knowledge and skills that are relevant, current and sought after by employers. In turn, this will also help companies strengthen their capabilities, remain competitive, and contribute to stronger economic growth for Singapore.

WDA aims to help workers advance in their careers and lives by developing and strengthening skills-based training for adults. We work with various partners–including employers, industry associations, the Union and training organisations–to develop relevant skills-based training that is accessible to all in the Workforce, whether young or old, from rank-and-file to professionals and executives.

For Eliademy WDA is proudly another public reference in addition to previously announced “The world of Work” and “Workers Association from UK” . We are glad to see that we share a common vision with those associations and to emphasise the message that Eliademy is here to serve all your e-elearning needs.

Since 1981, members have voluntarily formed international committees to jointly organize, plan, and host biennial conferences. The use of Universities and residential schools for our conferences has given us economical living space and academic support and in many instances School Nurses and their families have been welcomed into the homes of families in the host country after the conference, through which many friendships have been forged.

Their Mission statement is: “To share knowledge in the caring of children in our individual educational systems, knowing that it will make a difference in his or her life”.

We welcome our latest public reference and we are excited to announch that next week we will release a major update on Eliademy. Stay tuned for the big news and remember to visit our support pages and contribute to Eliademy!

ГБОУ СОШ 1950 from Russia, welcome to Eliademy!

Today we welcome a very special school from Moscow, Russia. “School 1950” a free translation of the name is a state budget institution of the city of Moscow with a in-depth study of specific subjects.

ГБОУ СОШ 1950

ГБОУ СОШ 1950

Subjects include mathematics, biology and science and they train 1200 students (age 9 to 17) every year. More than 140 teachers are teaching in the facility and we were surprised to notice that they publish the salary levels of their staff.

We also noticed that their web site is rather informative and well structured, students can even book an appointment with the head of the school over the net. A rather unusual sight for a public school website but something worth looking at and getting some ideas on how to improve your public web page.

Once again, we welcome them to Eliademy and we hope that we will see OER (Open education resources) contributed to Eliademy catalog in Russian language. We started this year offering OER courses and 100s have been created so far, so go ahead and contribute as well!
