Case Studies

  • Microsoft
  • Aga Khan Foundation
  • Walkgrove

With a name that needs no introduction, Microsoft was one of the first external publishers on the Alison platform in 2009. Since that time, over one million people worldwide have learned how to use and become proficient in using Microsoft productivity tools with Alison.

What people often don’t realise says Alison CEO Mike Feerick is that “while the Western world knows global brands such as Microsoft extremely well, there are still billions of people worldwide who have never heard of the brand – and that goes for many of the world’s largest brands representing some of the world’s most competitive products and services. Our reach into workplace learning communities around the world, increasingly in the developing world, is an attraction to these companies, even ones as large as Microsoft”.

In partnership with Aga Khan Foundation , a leading global development agency, Alison developed a highly-praised Certificate course on the Monitoring and Evaluation of NGO Projects. Volunteers working in the NGO sector world have completed the course. “Publishing on Alison introduced our organisation’s expertise to many thousands of NGO’s across the world” says Munir Ahmad, International Advisor, Technology and Civil Society, at the Aga Khan Foundation.

The global reach of the Alison platform was a big attraction to us, as was the pedagogic expertise of the Alison publishing team.

While our team were made of subject-matter-experts with many years of experience on the front line, the Alison publishing team made sure that the course, when published, was pedagogically sound and of high learning impact. Such a partnership, between a global free learning platform with pedagogic expertise such as Alison – and indeed an organisation with social mission such as Alison – combined with expertise of organisations like ours with a great depth of professional expertise can, on scale, transform learning, and indeed transform how people access learning worldwide”.

UK-based Walkgrove is a consortium of 250 industry experts who have a broad range of expertise and skills across many disciplines. Since 2010, Walkgrove has published on the Alison platform covering subjects such as Health & Safety, Environmental Studies, Management and Identity Theft.

Publishing on Alison serves Walkgrove in a number of ways; it provides a platform to present the expertise of Walkgrove and generate leads for further business through advertising the Company to a wide global audience. Furthermore, 24/7, its Alison hosted courses are earning additional income for Walkgrove and its own subject-matter-experts.

Jane Lunt, Client Solutions Consultant with Walkgrove states that publishing with Alison is a powerful win-win. “The beauty with working with Alison is that they manage the platform and bringing a huge audience to study our courses from all over the world. As a UK-based publisher, that is terrific international exposure for us. We continually update our courses on the Alison platform, and the service from the publishing team at Alison is speedy and professional. I would encourage other experts to monetise their knowledge and expertise in on the Alison platform”.

What we want from you:

  • Subject-Matter-Expertise: You must be an expert in your subject area with an interest in sharing knowledge.
  • Brand: If you are a large corporation publishing a course about an area in which you are clearly a world expert, that helps promote the course. Similarly, if you are a published academic or practising expert in the field within well known institutions, that is of interest to us. Some of the best experts are simply self-employed – but brand helps credibility.
  • Network: If you publish a course on Alison, can you help market it around the world? Many of our experts have industry communities or a large base of customers, employees, or organisation members to promote their courses to. Such networks will assist the speedy success of the course(s).
  • Publishing Capability: You can publish for free on Alison if you have the time and skill-set to self-publish, or can appoint someone within your organisation to learn these skills. If not, you can pay Alison or an Alison-Approved 3rd Party Contractor to develop a course for you.
  • Depth of Expertise: We are particularly interested in publishers who have the ability to publish not just one course, but multiple courses on their area of expertise. Alison is keen to develop "Verticals" on every subject, covering aspects of knowledge from Subject 101 to 999!
