Madrasa (the eLearning platform)
In October 2018, the UAE launched Madrasa, a free eLearning platform that provides 5,000 free Arabised videos in general science, math, biology, chemistry and physics. It also provides 11 million words of educational content to students from kindergarten to grade 12.
The platform is accessible online to over 50 million Arab students around the world. Students can access the platform on their personal computers or mobile phones through Madrasa app which is available on iTunes.
The eLearning platform presents the daily 1000×1000 competition that poses one question a day for 1,000 days. Students will get the chance to answer one question daily and enter a raffle draw to win USD 1,000.
Madrasa is the first outcome of the Translation challenge that was announced in 2017 by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI).
Creating hope and building a better future for societies represent the core message that shapes the vision, goals and objectives of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI).
To achieve its mission, the Foundation supports entities and empowers people who drive positive change in their societies, improve quality of life, and address challenges that impede human development, particularly in the Arab world.
The MBRGI’s humanitarian aid, development assistance and relief operations follow purely humanitarian objectives that are not confined to geography, religion, color or race. As His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum says, “Our aid has humanitarian objectives only; it is never governed by politics or limited by geography, race or religion of the beneficiary.”
