The course is comprised of 11 video modules, each running for 10 to 24 minutes. The lectures are delivered by a member of Smart’s IT team.

Users can learn at their own pace. They can replay videos, and even pause a video and come back to it at a more convenient time.

Nearly a thousand people have enrolled in the course, some of whom have given positive feedback.

“This online course is a great opportunity especially for people like us who work and don’t have time to attend some classes due to schedule conflicts. This really helps me a lot. Just by sitting in front of my laptop for one to two hours, I gain more knowledge,” said Marrian Vedua.
