How UNITAR incorporates EdApp microlearning to educate all communities around the world

To quickly adapt to the devastating effects and restrictions of COVID-19, UNITAR adopted EdApp. This enables UNITAR’s global leaders to continuously reach and support individuals and communities with invaluable and often life-changing content, which is easily accessed straight from learners’ mobile phones.

Educating millions with EdApp

With the help of EdApp, UNITAR educates on some incredible topics such as gender concepts, peace, women’s entrepreneurship, artificial intelligence, Sustainable Development Goals, leadership and governance, and more. These microlessons are easily delivered to hundreds of thousands of learners around the globe, reaching places like the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Sub Saharan Africa.

Powering education across the globe

EdApp allows UNITAR to quickly create and deploy training content via smartphone learning. More individuals around the world have access to a smartphone compared to desktops, so selecting a mobile-first platform like EdApp made sense to reach a broad range of learners all over the world.

EdApp works for global training and education

EdApp is an incredibly powerful tool, which has the capability to host and deploy an unlimited amount of content. Learning content can also be completed by learners anytime, anywhere since EdApp can reach to even the most remote locations where internet might be unstable or non-existent thanks to features like offline mode.


Since EdApp is so easy to navigate and use, our teams have been able to create, personalise, and deploy high-quality lessons very quickly.
