A local company, Leaptech, will soon launch an app to revolutionize e-learning under the National Education e-Learning Program (NEEP).
The app, which can be downloaded via Google Play Store, has been piloted at several schools in Manicaland, Mashonaland Central and the Midlands from last year until the end of this month.
The rollout will see the project evolve into a larger national school project.
Collaborative partnerships are already in place to roll out the project in the government’s NEEP.
The program is envisioned to provide comprehensive computer-based training using ICT solutions, with a particular focus on rolling out e-learning across the country.
Many institutions rely on ICT to improve the quality of education.
“We complement the government’s vision of ensuring continuous learning during Covid-19 and after the pandemic period through the provision of online learning to every learner, including advancing the development of science and technology at national scale. This is in line with the government’s national e-learning programme,” the company said in a statement.
“Our platform is a total turnkey solution helping institutions to manage everything in a centralized way suitable for each educational institution based on a stable and proven architecture. It provides full accountability, improving and simplifying schools’ administrative learning operations.
“It simultaneously manages and improves efficiency through the close supervision and monitoring of student and/or teacher activities by the school administration, Ministry of Education (primary and secondary) and parents.”
In Manicaland, the pilot project is taking place at Fern Valley Primary School, which has used the app successfully.
