Finnish e-learning firm wins contracts in Saudi and Singapore

Triba Learning, an adaptive learning provider, has signed deals to roll its software out in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.
The Finnish company uses data to track users’ studying habits. These are then analysed and used to make recommendations back to students.
One of the deals is with Numu Al-Elmia, an education solutions company in Saudi Arabia. Triba said the agreement could lead to over 100,000 Saudis signing up to its platform in the coming months.
The other is with e-cognition, a Singapore-based business, which plans to roll out the software in two Indonesian universities: the International Business School and the Indonesia International Institute for Life Sciences.
Yennah Mulia Winata, the firm’s chief executive, said: “The need for supporting students personally in enabling them to take control of and manage their own learning is constantly raising as the pressures for 21st century skills, as well as employability, are clearly increasing.”
Triba was founded in 2013 and also has representation in the UK and China. It has said that around 300 universities in the Jakarta area, along with 3,800 universities in Indonesia as a whole, will be targets for future growth.
