The Micro-Grid Academy now has a e-learning platform

An agreement with LEDsafari will enable students to follow online courses

Micro-Grid Academy (MGA) students now have an e-learning platform to use thanks to the agreement between RES4Med&Africa and LEDsafari.

The Micro-Grid Academy is a regional capacity building platform that provides theoretical and practical training on access to energy and decentralized renewable energy solutions to young East-African and international technicians, entrepreneurs and engineers. Launched at the beginning of 2018 by RES4Med&Africa in collaboration with AVSI Foundation, KPLC, Strathmore University and St. Kizito VTI, it trained around 150 participants in four sessions in its first year.

These participants, as well as future ones, now have free access to an on-line platform, which they can use to follow entry-level courses before attending MGA modules and to deepen their knowledge after attending MGA trainings. The e-learning platform, which for the moment is available for 200 MGA students (and more to come), was developed by LEDsafari to overcome language barriers and techno-economical limitations, such as low connectivity, for students coming from rural areas.

Micro-Grid Academy alumni have received or will receive shortly an email providing the instructions for registration, and will find the online courses at LEDsafari’s website.
