Ogweno Stephen, a young leader trailblazing new learning avenues

However, as evidence has continued to show, there needs to be a new way of doing things to keep up with the ever-changing world.

This was brought into light even more clearly with the wake of covid 19 which saw most traditional learning completely stop as people practiced social distancing.

This then raises the question, does learning stop during pandemics? Should we rethink our learning styles and can young people contribute to this revolution? Here is a remarkable story of a young leader who does exactly that.

So Ogweno Stephen is a 26-year-old global health practitioner who also has experience with entrepreneurship having started and failed in a lot of ventures but also managed to run some very successful and promising companies and organizations.

Ogweno who studied population health at the Kenyatta University and currently studying a masters in Global Health at the University Of Manchester, saw a gap in the learning style and decided to explore what options are there for him to teach on his expertise in non-communicable diseases and his experiences in entrepreneurship.

In his search for the best way to do it he discovered online learning and discovered that he only needed a camera, a studio and his well-researched topics and with that he could start an online series of courses to pass his skills and expertise to the next generation through the power of the internet.

With that he started in 2020 to shoot his first Course titled NCDS For Public Health which was shot and edited by his friends at The Talanta Institute.

This course was then uploaded to Udemy and Ogweno now has over 850 students who have taken this course in just over 1 year since launching.

What’s interesting however is when Ogweno set to produce his next series of courses called the Practical Skills Course series based off of his latest book Practical Skills For Entrepreneurial Success, that he saw a surprisingly high interest in his courses.

 The first course in the practical skills course series was released in June 2022 and within the month it already attracted 1017 students who are actively taking the course, proving that there is still a huge need to democratize and make structured learning accessible to all at all times.

Ogweno believes that the future of learning is online and that if you are an expert at something, you could benefit the world through teaching your skills to millions of people out there who may need your skill.

Learning is changing and we should change with it or else, we will be left behind in the fast paced changing world.

When it comes to learning we often think of the traditional route that is go to school, sit in a class, and get educated.
