eLC Pte Ltd announces a commercial partnership with Claned Group, the Finnish company behind the development of CLANED®, the world’s first open learning environment for personalized and social learning utilising artificial intelligence and real-time analytics. The partnership covers the distribution and resale rights in Singapore and in the APAC region.

William Chua, CEO at eLC Pte Ltd. says: “The need for supporting learners in a self-paced, self-directed learning environment is constantly rising as the pressures for Skills Future as well as employability are clearly increasing. Learning analytics allows educators to closely monitor learner’s progress through extensive feedback on the content and the learner’s learning styles”

“As Singapore’s government continues to encourage and support lifelong learning, eLC is excited to enter into this agreement with Claned Group as Claned’s capabilities was clearly evident to every education policy maker we talked to”, William Chua concludes.

Mervi Palander, CEO at Claned Group states: “We are looking forward to working closely with eLC and their truly professional management. It is in our mutual interest to take the personalized learning to a new level and change the way the learners can understand how they learn. The eLC partnership will open doors to potential hundreds of thousands of new users in the near future.”

“This agreement signifies Claned’s a major opening to Singapore and potentially the rest of APAC market, and we are confident that many educational institutes and organisations will soon join our platform.”

The newly formed partnership was first announced during the Finland 100 at Singapore Innovation Week, in Singapore. The Innovation Week is a part of series of 60 events throughout the world where Finland celebrates its 100th year of independence by connecting people and fostering collaboration opportunities.
