Edraak, is a massive open online course (MOOC) platform, that is an initiative of the Queen Rania Foundation (QRF). QRF is determined to ensure that the Arab world is at the forefront of educational innovation. As such, QRF has capitalized on regional Arab talent to leverage technology developed by the Harvard-MIT consortium, edX, to create the first non-profit Arabic MOOC platform. The new MOOC platform will present the Arab world with unique and vital opportunities that can be part of a necessary revolution in education and learning.

First, the platform will broadcast the best Arab professors to the region, offering original Arabic courses – developed by QRF – to further enrich Arab education. Through its partnership with edX, the platform will also give Arab learners access in Arabic to courses taught and developed at top tier institutions like HarvardX, MITX, and UC BerkelyX. All courses are delivered at no cost to the learner.

Second, QRF envisions the use of the platform to showcase Arab role models by broadcasting short online courses by practitioners and professionals from a variety of fields spanning the arts and sciences.

Finally, QRF believes that the platform will enable the Arab world to take advantage of the international interest in regional affairs to tell its own story to the world. Arab university professors and regional experts can use the platform to give courses in English about the region and its history. This will serve to inform a global audience that is interested in the region’s development.

Working as a trainer is most challenging, but at the same time, the most interesting and rewarding. It enables you to impact people’s lives positively. This challenge reaches its maximum when you are being responsible for preparing and qualifying others to be trainers! Those potential trainers will strive, voluntary and involuntary, to copy each behavior and movement you make. Hence, you must be very alert and strictly sticking to the professional standards in the field of training of trainers. However, eventually, you’ll be proud when seeing those new trainers practicing their training skills as per those professional standards. For those enjoyable moments, I’m so pleased to deliver the Training of Trainer (TOT) program on Edraak platform. As the demand for competent trainers in various fields is getting high in today’s market, and the great lack of Arabic professional TOT programs, IBCT has specially developed this introductory TOT course for the native Arabic speakers across the globe. This course is a part of the International Board of Certified Trainers (IBCT) training of trainer (TOT) program, the Novice Trainer level (NT).
