American University in Cairo has identified Innovation and Digital Transformation as key pillars. AUC has also prioritised resources to take first small steps towards a digital presence in the region, with seven fully online professional certificates/diplomas with the AUC brand.  Seven AUC EDRAAK MOOCs have been launched since 2015, albeit slowly to experiment with multiple modalities.
