TechInAfrica – The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has announced the launch of its online learning platform called X-Academy e-learning. The launch of the platform aims at providing affordable and quality learning to individuals, corporations, and institutions across the country.
X-Academy e-learning offers users access to the highly-structured and comprehensible self-paced capital market and soft skills learning content conveniently. The platform provides flexible, interactive, and personalized learning that fits users’ schedule.
Pai Gamde, Chief Human Resources Officer at NSE said during the launch of X-Academy e-learning: “Since the launch of X-Academy in 2017, we have facilitated over 50 training programs for over 2,000 individuals. With a carefully curated list of courses led by industry experts within and outside the capital market, X-Academy e-learning will make the training on offer at our brick and mortar X-Academy reach a much wider audience than ever before, thus increasing the number of users and making it more impactful.”
She added, “The launch of X-Academy e-learning will redefine learning experiences, as users can now take control of their learning when and where they need it. This initiative will support our drive to building and sustaining financial literacy, by providing accessible, cost-effective and high-quality learning to our ecosystem. The provision of X-Academy e-learning is surely a breakthrough for us at the Exchange, as we look to give our stakeholders the tools to achieve excellence.”
Head of Technology at the NSE, Abolaji Oyebo also commented on the launching of X-Academy e-learning: ”The platform was designed using the principle of eLearning as an experience, rather than an information source while incorporating new innovative technology that allows asynchronous learning with skill and certification tracking. I will like to commend the roles played by Phillips Consulting and Skillsoft, two of the leading global providers of high-quality, innovative outsourcing services as well as cloud-based learning and performance support resources, in the development of the e-learning platform.”
