Online editorial marketplace Ureed has launched a comprehensive e-learning platform in collaboration with the University of Saint Joseph. Dubbed Ureed Academy, this massive open online course (MOOC)program is designed for translators and content creators, and it coves a wide range of topics including the best practices for translation jobs, reading and analyzing source tax, translation strategies and technologies, and so on.
There are also dedicated sections to help professional translators to avoid common translation mistakes. Equally effective for content creators, Ureed Academy aims to mitigate the gap between education and skill development with the vision of raising the bar for professional content and translation services.
“We’re excited to announce the Ureed Academy, a place for freelancers and content creators to learn new skills and bridge the gap in localized content. This series of online courses has been nearly a year in the making, and we believe it will be a game changer in the regional marketplace,” said Founder and CEO of Ureed, Nour Al Hassan, following the launch of the new MOOC platform.
To sweeten the deal even further, Ureed Academy has announced an introductory offer that gives you a flat 40% discount on your first online course, bringing the price down to $21.
The launch Ureed Academy comes at the right time when the popularity of online learning is steadily on the rise owing to a slew of perks that give them an edge over the traditional classroom. These include a more flexible environment for education, availability of a broader range of courses, affordability, immunity from geographical constraints and so on.
