Dubai – MENA Herald: Orient Planet Academy, the first online PR and Communications Academy in the Middle East, has announced the enrollment dates for the first quarter of 2016. The timetable for the classes were established based on the growing requirements and needs of the Arab e-learning segment, especially for interested individuals in the Middle East region. The schedule for the Academy’s programs have been announced and interested learners must register before the start of classes, which has been set on January 21, February 18, and March 10, 2016.

Nidal Abou Zaki, Managing Director, Orient Planet Academy, said: “Orient Planet Academy remains committed towards helping individuals advance their personal and professional growth by providing relevant courses in highly sought after industries developed by leading experts in the field. We have received overwhelming response from people across the region. In light of the e-learning industry’s explosive growth over the past few years and in recognition of the Middle East’s expanding economies, we are dedicated to help enhance the skills of people in the Arab world.”

Recent studies indicate that the global e-learning market was expected to reach USD 107 billion last 2015. The Learning Management System (LMS) market has been forecasted to be worth USD 7.8 Billion by 2018. This positive growth reflects the steady expansion of the e-learning sector. The Orient Planet Academy is actively working to fill the market gap within the region by providing internationally recognized certificate courses in Public Relations (PR), Online Marketing, Journalism, Event Management and English Grammar. Each course will take 10 to 12 weeks and students are required to complete 10 to 12 modules and pass all requirements before a certificate is awarded.  

Orient Planet Academy is a direct collaboration of Orient Planet, one of the Middle East’s most rapidly growing PR marketing and communications consultancies, and the Irish Academy, an Ireland-based international online education provider of courses in communications disciplines. Orient Planet Academy’s courses have been exclusively developed by the Irish Academy to suit the needs of individuals within the Arab World.
