We’re excited to announce the launch of our new website and logo, as well as a new vision and set of values that reflect our passion for empowering the people of Africa through access to knowledge. Everything we do is measured by these guiding values: passion, integrity, servant leadership, and fairness.
We believe that knowledge has the means to empower Africa when applied wisely. For this reason we’ve committed ourselves to disseminating high-quality knowledge through the most appropriate technologies in Africa. We fulfil this commitment through our three business divisions – Publishing, eLearning and eCPD® – each one perfectly complementing the others.
“We’re so proud to showcase the enormous growth of all the divisions of AOSIS through a new look and feel, and a clearly defined vision,” says AOSIS MD, Dr Pierre de Villiers. “We feel privileged to be able to contribute to the improvement of so many people’s lives in Africa through access to knowledge.”
As South Africa’s only certified Moodle Partner since 2006, we’ve now simplified our name from AOSIS Ituta® eLearning to AOSIS eLearning, making us more memorable in the marketplace. Although we’ve changed our name, our roots still lie in the word ituta, derived from the Sesotho ithuta, which means to study or learn. Studying and learning are deeply entrenched in our corporate culture, motivating us to offer this service.
Over the years we have accumulated technical expertise and an understanding of the eLearning market. We bring that to our clients by developing customised eLearning platforms for schools and businesses, using techniques that are proven to enhance knowledge retention and learner interaction.
Since 2005 we’ve been at the forefront of enabling open access knowledge for academics, researchers and authors through AOSIS OpenJournals® in sub-Saharan Africa. Today we have renamed this division AOSIS Publishing as we are expanding our offering to include the publishing of scholarly books. Together with broadening our focus to publish in other mediums, we are even more determined to offer high-quality, open access publications across many academic disciplines.
We pride ourselves in unlocking Africa’s rich knowledge resources to the world for the empowerment of Africa.
Since 1999 we have offered fully accredited, high-quality, online Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses through eCPD®, enabling healthcare professionals to keep up with the latest knowledge in their fields. eCPD® has grown over the past 16 years to include courses for science, engineering and technology, accountancy and financial services professionals.
It is our goal to make our online courses as relevant and engaging as possible to help professionals improve their knowledge in their chosen field, so that in return they can serve Africa’s people well.
