The Open Learning Exchange (OLE) is proud to announce an exciting new partnership agreement with the International Education Association (IEA) in Lebanon.

The partnership will expand organizational depth and capacity for both organizations. OLE and IEA have a strong track record of delivering project-based learning and a community-based approaches to educational problems in order to combat systemic deficiencies. By using technology as a tool rather than as a solution, OLE and IEA strive for accelerating the learning process for students globally.

Since 2007, OLE International has been delivering affordable open source tools that promote collaborative learning models and participatory education programs. OLE International advocates for student-directed learning and project based learning to promote youth empowerment. A significant portion of our work is centered around the Open Learning Platform that provides instructors and learners with content and content management tools.
