The creators of ALISON, which is a not-for-profit social enterprise, believe that this model of education can save governments and educational institutions billions of dollars every year if it is adopted worldwide. Across the world, billions of people do not have access to high-quality skills-based interactive learning. The reason for this is usually distance and cost. The Internet changes this dynamic and ALISON provides a unique educational opportunity.
