The first digital school in Ethiopia launched, debuts with a lesson by Ermias Amelga

School of Cloud, which claims to be the first digital school in Ethiopia is launched with a first master class series to be given by the renowned business mogul Ermiyas Amelga. 

School of cloud, is one of the digital projects of EagleLion System Technology created with a vision to support the Ethiopian education system and build a generation with better education. The company claims that the school is the first of its kind in Ethiopia with an aspiration to become the top digital school in the Horn of Africa,   

Eaglion System Technology’s founder and CEO, Bersufikad Getachew said the opening of digital schools will bring a positive impact on the education sector. The platform provides opportunities for consumers to acquire new skills and develop their knowledge with the potential to expand education. 

The school will provide video lectures by successful and innovative individuals in their respective fields. In the future, the school will include video lectures and tutorials for primary and secondary education. 

“Ermyas Amelga, sees the new digital school as an important opportunity that will enable the transfer of expertise, life lessons, and knowledge of Ethiopian professionals to the next generation,” said Befikadu.

Customers can register online on the platform's website www.schoolofcloud.com  and access self-education videos at an affordable price starting from 100 Br. Payments can be made using the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia’s mobile banking system or register in person at one of its branches. 

In addition to the School of Cloud, Eaglelion System Technology developed groundbreaking systems and applications such as Cashgo, Guzogo, Itismydam (a crowdfunding app for GERD), Getfee, and Getrooms. 

The company is currently working on a National Payment Consolidator system that allows the transfer of funds from one financial institution to another and facilitates commercial and financial transfers between buyers and sellers.

Ermyas Amelga, who debuts School of Cloud’s service with a master class series, earned an M.B.A. degree in Finance & M.A. degree in International Economics from Boston University, and B.A. degree in Economics and Political Science from Amherst College in 1980. 

He spent 12 years as an investment banker in the United States before he returned to Ethiopia in 1996, where he went on to open a number of companies including Highland Springs Mineral Water, Zemen Bank, and Access Real Estate. 

Ermias was released from prison on Feb 2020 after two years of imprisonment with alleged corruption and other forms of crime when the federal Attorney-General decided to drop his charges along with other 63 individuals.
