Alison Celebrates 10 Million Learners Worldwide

Alison has announced that it has passed the 10-million registered learner milestone.

Alison pioneered free online education ten years ago when it launched the world’s first massive open online course (MOOC) provider. The site serves more than two million users each in the United States and the United Kingdom, and one million users in India. The site has two million users across Africa, making it the largest single provider of free online education on the continent.

Based in the West of Ireland, Alison was founded by serial entrepreneur Mike Feerick. The site offers learners free access to more than 800 courses, spanning subject areas including languages, IT and digital skills, project management, personal development and many others. Recently launched subjects include a course on how to Build Your Own Drone and Software Testing.

The organization will launch a new website on 10 April designed to improve user experience with a more interactive platform that is mobile-friendly.
