Public Relations, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Corporate Communication Director at Orange Jordan, Eng. Rana AlDababneh said: “The shift to online learning during the COVID crisis has reiterated the importance of digital education and technological innovation in maintaining and developing the educational process. Education remains at the heart of our social responsibility and our efforts to enhance educational outcomes for the benefit of students, the labor market and society at large. Through our collaboration with Ericsson, we will contribute towards providing access to quality educational content aimed to be both informative and engaging to students in Jordan.”
Hosam Zarour, Country Manager of Ericsson Jordan says: “Ericsson is committed to empowering an intelligent, sustainable and connected world, one in which a quality education is accessible for all.
