USAID supports e-Learning Macedonia

Representatives of the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) e-BIZ Project and the South East European University (SEEU) signed today a Memorandum of Understanding.

The Memorandum renews SEEU’s Business Development Center’s exclusive license for distributing SkillSoft online courses to Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Serbia and Montenegro.

"SkillSoft online training is a good example of the global training trend we call e-Learning,” said Hal Yaeger, head of USAID’s e-BIZ Project. Yaeger and SEEU Rector, Academic Aljadin Abazi signed the agreement.

The SEEU’s Business Development Center, in addition to the e-learning opportunities, also provides consulting and classroom training services to organizations through the use of information and communication technology. Services include management training, business consulting, and video conferencing.

The SkillSoft program includes over 4000 on-line courses. Nearly 3000 leading companies use SkillSoft and more than half of the world's largest 500 companies use SkillSoft e-Learning.
