HUAWEI CLOUD and Singapore-based learning technology company, ULearning, jointly offer free online learning and training solutions to the education sector and businesses to enable continuity of learning and skilling during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The initiative comes as a response to UNESCO’s call for innovation and inclusion to ensure continuity of learning, and for the crisis to not exacerbate learning inequalities.
In Singapore, the Ministry of Education (MOE) recently announced that institutes will have one day of home-based learning per week, as part of its social distancing measures to contain the local spread of the virus. The Ministry also expressed its awareness that it will have an impact on many parents and families, especially those without good home support.
HUAWEI CLOUD and ULearning’s joint offering comprises free access to the ULearning Learning Management System (LMS) portal, functions and features such as campus virtualisation and multi-terminal access, and free user accounts for institute administrators, educators, and learners to access the tools across PCs and mobile devices, enabled by Huawei’s all-in-one cloud solutions.
In addition, ULearning LMS has been recognised by local academics for its latest technologies for enhanced and advanced learning experiences.
ULearning LMS also serves as a cost-efficient and scalable training and reskilling platform during and after the economic downturn. The platform allows businesses to manage their entire training program from one secure, centralised environment, with high and mass livestreaming capabilities, equipped with learning tracking and analytics, to ensure uptake, compliance, and performance.
ULearning LMS is currently offered as part of a suite of Infocomm Technology (ICT) solutions available to address business continuity challenges arising from COVID-19, jointly curated by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (“IMDA”) and SGTech. The offering is in support of the government’s call for the Republic to upskill to stay on track with its long-term goal of transforming its economy.
