Students across the globe are faced with an alarming lack of access to education. Empoverished and low-connectivity areas greatly limit the possibility for individuals to educate themselves or have access to resources to improve skills. This also leads to a lack of employment in many regions as most individuals do not have the resources or means to find meaningful and gainful employment.
OpenClassrooms prioritises fostering accessible education for everyone - at all levels, from funding options to progressive pedagogy and personalized mentorship. 100% online education is a way to abolish the barrier to education. They provide free online courses to every student to ensure their mission: to make education accessible. OpenClassrooms also focuses on employability. They develop training programs with one focus in mind: allowing people to progress in their careers - at all levels, from focus to most in-demand competencies to personalised career coaching for each and every student.
OpenClassrooms promotes education that works through a 100% online pedagogy. OpenClassrooms creates partnerships with local associations and/or public actors to hybridise its educational model (blended learning). They combine online and offline solutions to create an innovative educational experience and increase connectivity.
