What is Rahhal?
Rahhal is part of 10x – a Dubai Future Foundation initiative to take Dubai ten years into the future – in just two years. Meaning traveller in Arabic, the message of Rahhal is simple: the world is a classroom, and all learning counts. Rahhal is a fully customisable platform that will help turn anyone, and any organisation, into a learning provider, and turn all of us into lifelong learners. It will be a conduit that harnesses the community’s knowledge and skills and channels it to each individual learner. And the best part? All learning on the platform will be given the stamp of approval by Dubai government.
Rahhal provides a creative and innovative alternative to mainstream education – an alternative that brings out the best from within the community and recognises learning wherever it occurs. It is a platform that helps to integrate learning with life, and life with learning.
Who will benefit from Rahhal?
By providing a supportive regulatory environment, Rahhal will enhance learning opportunities for all members of the community, whether they’re children or adults. It will support learners with special education needs as well as those with special gifts and talents; it will diversify the choices for parents who wish to supplement their children’s education; and it will provide adults with a flexible, modular form of learning that can be used to further their careers or enrich their lives.
Rahhal is currently in pilot phase and will be made available to a greater number of learners in the coming weeks and months. If you’re a learning provider and you have disruptive ideas about how Rahhal can help you enrich the opportunities you provide to your learners, please click here.
