The FAO elearning Academy offers over 350 multilingual e-learning courses, free of charge, as a global public good and is the result of a collaborative effort involving over 200 partners throughout the world. The overall objective of the FAO elearning Academy is to strengthen the human capital, through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competences, in order to generate competent professionals able to face the global challenges.
MediaTouch implemented FAO elearning Academy using the native functions of Moodle and adding 30 additional plugins to satisfy FAO’s request in order to make the users learning experience much more engaging and significant.
FAO had the necessity to modify its old platform characterized by fixed and not mobile responsive layout. Their goal was to promote to the users a new Academy for global learning following FAO’s guidelines and making it more open and globally accessible.
These are the main features introduced by MediaTouch:
- platform is provided in six different languages;
