Welcome to the MDi Pakistan E-Learning Portal

Most organizations and executives do not always have the time or budget to attend classroom training away from work. The online training programs available on this portal are intended to provide free or low-cost learning opportunities to such organizations and professionals. The programs are based on the Micro-Learning  and Learning through Quizzes (LTQ) concepts where you get concise and actionable learning about the topic in just an hour or two, perhaps in just one sitting. The focus of such training is to address very specific needs very quickly. 

The programs consist of a combination of text, images, quizzes, videos, presentations, audio, course summaries and useful web resources. 
There is also a discussion area for each course to enable social learning, sharing of resources and seeking help and advice.
