Our impact map

Where can
atingi be used?

Our learners are based in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. atingi serves learners age 16+ who own an email account and have alphabetic literacy and therefore usually have completed basic education at minimum.

We look for partners who wish to use atingi to impact these learners through offering free-of-charge digital learning programmes – whether by uploading content of their own or enrolling learners into our existing courses.

Why does atingi provide a learning platform?

Our role as a digital learning platform developed by the German Development Cooperation is to provide a public good that reduces barriers to capacity building across the Global South.

Designing, setting up and maintaining a learning management system from scratch is costly, complex, time-consuming and drains scarce resources in non-profit projects from areas much more crucial for digital learning impact. Oftentimes, a LMS is set up by international development projects specifically for their individual undertaking. Unfortunately, these projects often lack reach and communities of practice, leading to underperforming results.

We want to avoid reinventing the wheel, save resources and ensure impact by providing an easy-to-use, state-of-the-art and sustainable platform that our partners can leverage for their international development projects.

Many project-specific LMS are abandoned after some time due to government changes or depletion of maintenance resources, resulting in instability and a negative learner experience. atingi meanwhile is here to stay.

Based on the Principles for Digital Development, our platform is designed for scale, encourages the exchange and adaptation of existing digital learning resources, protects user data, most of its content is openly licensed, and certifications are aligned to open standards. It is also recognized as the standard tool for digital learning within GIZ and throughout German development cooperation.

We intend to reach millions of learners by 2025 and make culturally relevant, SDG-advancing courses – from environmental protection to employability, gender equality to digital skills, and so much more!
