Mr-Mak Web Services (MWS)
Mr-Mak Web Services (MWS) is not a content pillar but a facilitative service. Specifically it offers institutions the capacity to deliver their own digitised learning content to their employees or targeted audience using Mr-Mak's infrastructure. As a result they enjoy the economies of scale and efficiencies that arise from sharing infrastructure as opposed to each organisation building their own expensive offering. This offering is particularly relevant across companies and institutions of varying sizes in both the private, public, and non-profit making sectors, and globally.
