Specto, the ICDL National Operator in a number of Arab states, has worked with pan-Arab ‘massive open online course’ (MOOC) platform, EDRAAK, to make ICDL Base modules available to a wider audience.

After months of hard work from both partners, the new materials were prepared by an expert trainer from Specto, and will benefit millions of Arab students. Once they have completed the training, candidates will be ready to take ICDL certification tests.

The EDRAAK MOOC platform is an initiative of Jordan’s Queen Rania Foundation. It offers courses in Arabic, and includes access to courses developed by organisations including HarvardX, MITX, and UC BerkelyX. All courses are delivered at no cost to the learner.

The course can be found on the EDRAAK website [in Arabic].
