Online application set to revolutionize education in Kenya

18 November 2013, 15:55

Nairobi - An online application that allows primary and secondary school students to access learning material has been launched in Nairobi.

Intel Kenya has launched the Intel Explore and Learn education application that is poised to better education standards in the country.

The newly- launched application is as a result of a partnership between Intel and Rancard mobile company, which provides a cloud based software platform for mobile content, discovery, delivery and monetization.

The online application will be applicable to all students from both secondary and primary schools.

It contains information on textbooks, revision books, set books, interactive past examination papers and multimedia content.

“The aim of the Intel Explore and Learn solution is to provide a resource hub where learners can find relevant content to enrich their studies while at the same time provide publishers with access to a platform that will enable them to easily share their learning content,” said Intel’s Middle East and Africa Business Director, Cigdem Ertem during the launch.

This will give the education sector a major boost as students will reduce their reliability on teachers considering that that the country faces an acute shortage of teachers.

Education Ministry Cabinet Secretary, Professor Jacob Kaimenyi lauded the move noting that it placed the country on the right foot towards attaining the Vision 2030.

“Indeed towards the realization of Vision 2030, the education system will be guided by placing emphasis on new developments and subsequent innovations in science and technology,” said Prof Kaimenyi.

The online application will save students time lost searching through the internet for various relevant educational materials.
