Today the RLabs academy was in full swing at 3 different Living Labs across the country (Cape Town, Atlantis and Johannesburg). The variety of courses on offer were Social and Digital Media, Project Management, Events Management, Photo Editing and Entrepreneurship with more than 500 community learners (young and old) attending.

The Entrepreneurship groups were learning the Business Model canvas (see presentation below), digital and social media groups were introduced to tools such as Google Apps, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger and YouTube, events and project management teams were introduced to their respective projects while the photo editing participants were learning how to master open source editing software. The buzz at the academy proved to us once more that the appetite for learning in our communities are on the rise and that the possibilities for reconstruction are endless.
