Bellow is article by Chimdindu Aneke(ALC Project Manager)
“In January 2017, Andela and Google came together to do just that. We launched the Android Learning Community (ALC) in Nigeria to identify and certify Android developers as globally competitive by way of a Udacity course.
Fueled by Andela’s learning science, Udacity’s online curriculum, and Google’s community science, ALC 1.0 has supported 2,000+ aspiring technologists to date and has resulted in over 1,000 of them becoming Android Developers.
In the past four months, learners in the ALC have built 3,500+ applications, spent more than 30,000 hours learning, and have shared 100+ success stories with over 300,000 online impressions. They were supported by a team of 5 volunteer program assistants who directly worked with 50+ volunteer facilitators and meetup organizers. These volunteers went on to facilitate meetups across 26 locations in Nigeria and mentored the learners who were grouped into teams that promoted collective accountability.” Follow this link to read the complete article https://medium.com/@chimdi2000/andela-and-googles-android-learning-community.
