Safaricom yesterday announced a partnership with Zeraki learning seeking to give High School learners across the country access to affordable education services – in the form of video lessons, assessment tests and more.
The technology company says high school learners will be getting services from well trained teachers. The platform provides topic-by-topic assessments and and powerful metrics that’ll help students diagnose their weaknesses and track their progress.
Each subject has lesson by lesson content from Form 1 to Form 4. From the app, students and other facilitators are able to track progress on lessons taken, with notes and assignments.
From the MySafaricom App, parents and guardians will be able to subscribe for the learning service for as little as KES 20 a day. The amount can be deducted from customers’ airtime/postpaid bill or paid via M-Pesa.
Zeraki analytics offers the latest system of compiling and analyzing students’ data by providing an interface for results analysis, marks entry, and bulk messaging to parents. For the teachers, Zeraki analytics results gives them a new and easy way to analyze and visualize exam results.
