Online learning programmes of a short duration have become popular for many reasons. Online short learning programmes enable students to learn a new skill, at their own pace and convenience, in the comfort and security of their home. Besides being more accessible than degree programmes, online short learning programmes are also more affordable.

Paresh Soni, Director of MANCOSA’s School of Information and Digital Technology believes that the there is an urgent need to bring the ordinary person from periphery to the centre of the digital revolution.

“The reality is that very few South Africans are participating meaningfully in the digital economy. It is through technopreneurship Masterclasses like ours, as well as other digital short courses available on the MANCOSA SkillME platform, that individuals will learn how to successfully transform their existing ideas and traditional businesses into successful digital businesses.

“We have selected some of the most outstanding and recognised industry leaders, with proven track records, to guide our students in their pursuit of developing their digital competencies,” he said.

Soni added that all registered participants would also receive a blockchain-issued certificate of completion, after the masterclass.
