*Online Academy – The Road Ahead
With an ever-increasing number of educators and trainers turning to the online medium to deliver learning, there’s an unprecedented rise in the number of online teaching tools and platforms that claim to deliver exceptional results and enable educators to achieve their goals. But, do they really deliver on promises?
