Success Stories by East African Graduates through Learning on Alison
Mike's upcoming trip through East Africa is a wonderful opportunity to meet face to face with some of our almost half a million Alison learners in the region. In the lead up to his travels and the eLearning Africa event taking place in Rwanda, we surveyed our East African Graduates to understand how Alison has impacted their lives.
More than a quarter of the graduates testified how Alison's free courses and career development tools diversified their skills (27.3%), while 23.7% were left feeling more confident after completing one or more of our 4000 free Certificate and Diploma courses on offer. Nearly 20% improved their workplace skills with 7.2% and 10.8% testifying how our platform has resulted in employment or a career boost.

"Having a background in biology and a little bit of physics, I found myself in a situation where all creative ideas I could come up with were software. Thankfully, I have a team of two computer science students who are doing all the development, but I really needed to talk their language. More than that, I needed to be able to help them when they need me. The courses I took on Alison helped me shape my computer skills to a level sufficient enough to meet my needs."
- Lowa Miuwi
"It has always been my pleasure to recommend Alison to my trainees everywhere I facilitate. I think this has contributed to my professional image as a facilitator, through my recommendations of an online professional website which can further support my clients. By doing the course on how to prepare the online material I still remember how you have to present ideas clearly and concisely; sharing great ideas using a few words. I liked very much this approach."
