MoSHE and IntelliMedia Networks Partner to Digitally Transform the Ethiopian Higher Education and Vocational Training Sector

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Ethiopian Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MoSHE) agrees to join forces with IntelliMedia Networks Inc. and its local partners Andalem Consulting PLC and United Systems Integrators, to enable a country-wide online learning platform to streamline access to higher learning across Ethiopia and improve quality of education and training for undergraduate and graduate students.

This historic public-private partnership will implement IntelliMedia's Apollo Learning and Training Management System (LTMS) that utilizes engaging virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) content with a multi-phase five-year strategy ranging from a short term COVID-19 response to a full digitization of the Ethiopian higher education and training sector. The project which is valued at multi-million dollars will build higher education institutions' capacity for delivery of Ethiopian-authored content to anyone with a smartphone, including live and on-demand classroom courses, access to additional learning material, centralized secure online testing, artificial intelligence (A.I.) backed personalized learning and data-driven sector performance metrics.

The project is a direct outcome of Ethiopian prime minister and Nobel peace prize winner Dr. Abiy Ahmed's digital transformation agenda, for Ethiopia's inclusive and sustainable development. It will bridge the gap between higher education and the local economy through effective integration with industrial actors through project-based learning, precision internships and job placement. It also aims to become the driving force for technology entrepreneurship and the development of a vibrant national startup ecosystem.

"This partnership is yet another important milestone in our effort to digitize the Ethiopian higher education and vocational training sector, as an integrated part of the overall digital Ethiopia strategy set forth by the government," said MoSHE State Minister Professor Afework Kassu Gizaw. "We are excited to bring this capability to Ethiopia's student body as it will help us further achieve a fundamental shift by enabling higher education institutions to provide high quality, immersive and personalized education coupled with data-driven metrics helping us reach our goal of improving our teaching institutions."

"As a member of the Ethiopian diaspora since 1978, I am especially honored to contribute to Ethiopia's digital transformation by providing educational platforms ideal for its unique needs. With IntelliMedia's consultative and collaborative approach in overcoming local challenges and its commitment to a fully transparent knowledge-transfer, this project will play a significant role in creating opportunities for the Ethiopian knowledge workforce and in fostering entrepreneurship. We will work as a strong and determined partner to support the advancement of education in Ethiopia," said Teodros Gessesse, CEO and co-founder of IntelliMedia Networks, Inc.

"There is a convergence of themes playing out in emerging markets that's accelerating educational institutes' engagement with online learning and training systems. IntelliMedia is thrilled with this partnership, which will provide the necessary flexibility for MoSHE and Ethiopian institutions to deliver content using our immersive learning technologies," said IntelliMedia's president and co-founder Darshan Sedani.

The collaboration between MoSHE, IntelliMedia Networks and local Ethiopian partners Andalem Consulting PLC and United Systems Integrators (USI) is prepared to affect a rolling deployment that is geared to enable Ethiopians to locally create educational content, manage and expand the Apollo LTMS platform based on local infrastructure and mobile data network conditions.

"This private public partnership is an ideal platform that will enable us to effectively mobilize the necessary resources to execute on our joint mission to digitize higher education and better integrate it with the country's and the global digital economy," says Michael Tesfaye Hiruy Managing partner of Andalem Consulting PLC.

"This is a true collaboration of government, the Ethiopian diaspora and local Ethiopian businesses in a project that empowers Ethiopians to create sustainable growth," said Michael Shebelle managing director of USI Ethiopia.

The Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MoSHE) of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is established by proclamation number 1097/, in October 2018, and is responsible to lead the development of science, higher education as well as the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Ethiopia.

LeadingIT Announces Year-End Plans and Looks Forward to A Strong 2021

CHICAGO, Ill. -- LeadingIT, a cybersecurity and technology support company in the Chicagoland area, outlines the plans for its team and clients for the end of the year, as well as the strategy it has to grow in 2021.

2020 has brought unprecedented changes to the business world and changed how many companies in the world run their operations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many people now work remotely, and, according to Global Workplace Analytics estimates, 25 to 30 percent of the workforce will continue to work from home on multiple days of the week (*note 1).

As an IT support and cybersecurity provider, LeadingIT took a leading role in ensuring that its clients' employees could work from home efficiently and effectively, accessing cloud resources and corporate networks securely through two-factor authentication.

LeadingIT Puts Team's Welfare At The Forefront Of Everything It Does

Without an expert team of IT professionals focused on helping clients mitigate risk and putting business continuity plans in place, many businesses would have shut down or been unable to support remote work on such a massive and immediate scale. Their knowledge and expertise have been key reasons why LeadingIT continues to grow during the current uncertain business environment.

Recognizing this, the Chicagoland IT support and cybersecurity provider introduced several team benefits, including:
* Having paid time off as a critical part of the benefit policy
* Flexible work hours, where employees can leave early or arrive late and make up the time later
* End-of-year bonuses
* Company-funded healthcare plan covering life, dental, vision, and medical
* The ability for the team to work remotely from anywhere

LeadingIT In The Community

LeadingIT prides itself on being an integral part of the community in which the company operates. Recognizing the need for quality healthcare for children in disadvantaged neighborhoods, the company teamed up with the fundraising organization, Extra Life, to help treat injured or sick children and spread some cheer to their families during a difficult period (*note 2).

Every year, the LeadingIT team sets fundraising targets then invites donors to sponsor marathon gaming sessions organized by Extra Life. If you're looking to participate in the charity, the end of the year is a great time to do so and help brighten up the holidays for children in need. Head to Extra-Life.org to learn more about the cause.

Looking Forward To 2021

2020 has brought on new challenges, and businesses must find innovative ways to offer great experiences for their clients and team, to avoid losing out to their competitors and the virus. As quoted by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, the tech giant has seen "two years of digital transformation within two months" (*note 3). LeadingIT plans to play a significant role in ensuring businesses continue to operate seamlessly in 2021.

Stephen Taylor, Leading IT's CEO, says, "Over the past year, we have seen a large demand for cybersecurity, cloud support, and fast and friendly technology support that offer immediate and measurable results as businesses spend large amounts of money to move toward a digital mode of working."

He expresses his pleasure that LeadingIT was able to retain its team at a time characterized by unprecedented uncertainty. Given the essential role that managed service providers like LeadingIT expect to play in the ongoing digital transformation, the firm wants to add more experts to its team in 2021.

"We're focusing on really expanding our organization by hiring new team members and through strategic acquisitions in the new year," adds Stephen Taylor. He also believes that 2021 will be a new year for everyone, including the IT support and cybersecurity industry. As people and businesses adapt to the new way of working, it could be the start of a refreshing new beginning for the technology industry.

About LeadingIT

LeadingIT offers 24/7, all-inclusive, fast, and friendly technology and cybersecurity support for nonprofits, manufacturers, schools, accounting firms, religious organizations, government, and law offices with 10-200 employees across the Chicagoland area.
