Young Nigerians can now access free quality education and pass WASSCE, UTME, NECO and more in one sitting, all for free, as the Afrilearn Mobile App and Web platforms become freely accessible to Primary and Secondary School learners across Nigeria and beyond.
Founded in 2019, Afrilearn empowers children ages 6 to 18 with free, fun, and world-class education for best grades in school and competitive examinations like the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), National Examination Council (NECO) and others. The EdTech startup also monitors every learner’s progress with detailed analytics to help every student identify their strengths and areas for improvement.
“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,” said Isaac Oladipupo, Co-founder/CEO at Afrilearn.
He further stated that
“Our 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.”
Owing to its seamless fun learning experience, the award-winning education streaming startup has organically reached over 486,032 learners, with more than fifty thousand gamified quizzes, five thousand curriculum-specific class notes, and over three thousand video lessons.
According to Gabriel Olatunji-Legend, Co-founder/Head of Content at Afrilearn,
“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.”
Recounting her experience, a Secondary School student in Lagos, Isabella Onuwa attested,
“For the first time ever, I got straight A’s in my exams. All thanks to the free, exciting practice exercises on the Afrilearn app. This is definitely the fastest way to pass WAEC, NECO, JAMB, and I’m still surprised that it’s absolutely free.”
The Afrilearn CEO, Isaac Oladipupo pointed out,
“It’s very unfair to expect a changed Nigeria without first educating Nigerians. It is practically impossible to have Nigeria develop faster than its educational system. Sadly, our brick-and-mortar system of education is neither affordable nor sustainable. Having witnessed this firsthand in our formative years, Gabriel and I left our lucrative jobs in 2018 to solve this problem, leveraging technology.”
Widely described as the Netflix of education for young Africans, 94% of students who use Afrilearn report achieving higher school grades, increased confidence and exam success.
