Edraak - The Leading MOOC Platform in the Arab World

Edraak is an initiative of Queen Rania Foundation (QRF) that is directed to the Arab World, as a result of Her Majesty Queen Rania’s long time efforts to develop the educational and cognitive heritage in the Arab World and exploit every opportunity for advancement of the youth.

Edraak aimed to reach as many learners as possible with the introduction of technology. Using the Open edX® platform allowed for  learners to learn at their own pace, access the learning material at any time, interact with other learners and the teacher, as well as take the examination and receive a certificate or course grade/score. 

Amazon Web Services (AWS) auto-scaling feature was used to monitor Edraak’s platform and automatically adjust capacity to maintain steady, predictable performance at the lowest possible cost.

Edraak was the first Open edX deployment in the MENA region, and the sixth globally. A schools’ program has been added at the end of 2017 to serve the student starting with the mathematics curriculum for all grades (K-12). As of Q1 of 2019, Edraak had over 2 million users and more than 4 million course enrollments.
