15.000 Audio books that you can use with Eliademy

Welcome to your Live Learning Platform.

Last week we silently added one small icon to our super friendly course editor. The new icon (A sound/speaker icon) enables you to add and stream Audio directly from your course.

Why is such small addition significant?

Most of the 36.000 courses hosted on Eliademy contain Videos, text, and images. We looked into the data and we decided that Audio, as an educational object,  is missing from the majority of the courses.

So today we are enthusiastically proud to announce that you can add Streaming audio to your online course and not only in a single way. In order to educate our user base of 25.000 teachers, we decided as well to create a course to inform you on how to properly use this new small addition of our editor.

You can enrol to this course in order to learn how to add audio to your course. 

To make the news even more exciting, we are happy to announce that now you can use over 15.000 Free audio books (Librivox.org) as learning objects into your courses.

All those books are classic masterpieces of human literature that have been liberated from commercial license because they are old (prior of 1921) . In the above-mentioned course, we provide information on how to use and stream those books directly to your students by using Eliademy.

Now, you have the opportunity to teach spoken English, check comprehension or simply place a seed of a good habit to your students. We hope you use it to the maximum.

Singapore Workforce Development Agency proudly on Eliademy! (新加坡劳动力发展局)

The Singapore Workforce Development Agency (AbbreviationWDAChinese: 新加坡劳动力发展局) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Manpower of the Singapore Government.

Singapore Workforce development agency

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.

Cairo University, welcome to Eliademy

Cairo university

Cairo university

Cairo University (previously King Fuad I University, Egyptian University) is a public university in Giza, Egypt. It was founded on 21 December 1908. It is the second oldest institution of higher education in Egypt, notwithstanding the pre-existing higher professional schools that later became constituent colleges of the university, after Al Azhar University. It was founded and funded as the Egyptian University by a committee of private citizens with royal patronage in 1908. The University currently enrolls approximately 155,000 students in 22 faculties. It counts three Nobel Laureates, including  Yasser Arafat a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994,  among its graduates and is one of the 50 largest institutions of higher education in the world by enrolment and in the top 500 world universities.

The faculty of Pharmacy recently started using Eliademy for the new academic year and we are hopeful that their good experience will spread in all the other faculties and cover the needs of the 120.000 students.

We would like to remind you that All non-profits and public academic institutions have access to Eliademy Premium for free and those organizations can save 100.000s of euros per year by using it as a replacement for Blackboard or Moodle platforms for instance.
