Online Education Club is a social enterprise dedicated to making world-class education accessible in Azerbaijan. We believe every person has the right to have the same quality education wherever they live in the world. We utilize the second wave of open, online course ware (MOOCs) to create a learning community that will empower individuals in Azerbaijan to think differently and pursue their dreams.
