Afrilearn, a Nigerian edtech platform, has launched its free online platform that allows for free education.
It would be available to students across Nigeria and beyond.
They would be able to gain access to primary and secondary education materials.
Also, they would be able to learn at their own pace.
This would be done by providing them with a detailed analysis that helps the students identify their strengths and weaknesses.
And it would help them focus on the right areas to grow.
Afrilearn was built in 2019 by Isaac Oladipupo and Gabriel Olatunji-Legend.
They founded the company to offer free education to those who cannot access education.
Also, they make education fun and offer world-class classes for the different grades.
And for exams like West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), National Examination Council (NECO) and others.
Speaking of its launch, the founders of the company makes different comments.
According to Oladipupo, one of the founders, “Some children learn best by watching videos, some by reading class notes, some by solving practice problems, and some by social collaboration. By design, Afrilearn is purposefully built to give every child the freedom to learn using the unique methods that work best for them.”
CEO Oladipupo adds that an “innovative e-learning platform offers richly animated and curriculum-based video lessons, class notes, practice exercises, live classes, a personalised learning dashboard, and many more learning resources”.
Adding, Gabriel Olatunji-Legend, co-founder/Head of Content at Afrilearn, says that “beyond helping students fill learning gaps with trusted content by expert tutors, with its several cutting-edge features, Afrilearn also empowers teachers, schools, and parents to effectively accelerate learning outcomes. Our goal is to empower students to study at their own pace in and outside the classroom, via any device”.
Still commenting, Gabriel says many schools do not offer quality education to these students.
Therefore they would offer comprehensive and easily accessible content.
They would make their platform so friendly and easy to navigate.
Achievements by Afrilearn
Afrilearn has recorded that 94% of people who use their learning app have recorded good grades.
Also, it has won an award as an education streaming platform.
And it has reached over 486,032 learners, with more than 50,000 gamified quizzes, 5,000 curriculum-specific class notes, and over 3,000 video lessons.
What we think
Afrilearn is going to change the educational space in Nigeria and worldwide.
Many societies, especially developing ones, still have areas in which there is no access to free education.
And with the way the world keeps evolving, they won’t get to evolve alongside.
Platforms like Afrilearn would change education’s narration by using technology to solve the problem.
Asides from the problem of free education, some of the ones that give free education do not offer quality learning materials and facilities.
And these are the problems Afrilearn has come to solve.
