A local technology company Atlancis technology has announced plans to introduce a digital learning platform for private schools in the country.
The company, which was this month named a Top 100 company for innovation, has created the only Kenyan digital content produced for the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) by Kenyan teachers, as part of its strategy of populating its Kenyan cloud platform with transformative local content.
Daniel Njuguna, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Atlancis Technologies said the rollout of the online platform dubbed “i-Learn” seeks to onboard private schools that are yet to include e-learning in their curriculums.
“It was an honour to be selected by Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) this year to provide digital content for the new curriculum for Grades 1 and 2,” said Njuguna.
He said the firm will also provide teachers with training and set-up support as part of a much bigger investment in ground-breaking education cloud technology to deliver on the government’s vision of a digitalised education system for all Kenyans.
“Today, we are taking the next step again, with the launch of a learning management system offering some of the iLearn content for free and providing schools with digital libraries, the capacity to create quizzes, interactive lessons and every type of e-learning content,” he added.
The initiative is targeted at accelerating the digitisation of schools following the rollout of the CBC early this year.
