A Holistic Education Ecosystem for Lifelong Learning
Today’s education landscape is increasingly leaning in favour of fluid competencies such as learning agility instead of the traditional focus on acquisition of knowledge and skills.
With this in mind, Prestariang launched UNIMY in January 2013 to to offer a holistic value chain and provide lifelong learning opportunities to meet market needs in areas of rapid change. The emphasis is on producing adaptable students with the ability to negotiate the shifting demands of employment, particularly in dynamic industries that form the core of the digital economy.
To address the shifting demands, the Group’s Training & Certification business is embedded into UNIMY and deliver it through EduCloud’s online education platform. New product offerings tailored for the mass market such as shorter term online courses in place of the traditional programs are offered while boosting the university’s portfolio. Education can be delivered in short, relevant and effective packages rather than in the form of systematic learning of capabilities that could very well be rendered obsolete by the time the talent enters the workforce.
The major role of these technologies in education is to empower tech-enabled individuals to source high quality academic content more effectively via an open source learning rather than manual source learning. It encourages more creative learning experiences where it enables students to be innovative and proactive.
