By Staff Writer, 28 June 2024

Afrilearn, Nigeria's leading learning app, has launched a groundbreaking new initiative aimed at revolutionizing education by making learning not only accessible but also engaging and rewarding for students.

In a country where access to quality education remains a persistent challenge, Afrilearn has distinguished itself by aligning closely with the national curriculum to offer a comprehensive array of educational resources. These include class notes tailored to the curriculum, animated video lessons, instant homework help, game-based exam practice, and personalized learning dashboards.

The company's multifaceted approach empowers primary and secondary school students to learn at their own pace, anytime and anywhere, thereby bridging educational gaps across the nation.

Isaac Oladipupo, Co-founder and CEO of Afrilearn, emphasized the significance of their mission, stating, "Every child possesses inherent greatness, given the right learning tools. Afrilearn is our commitment to empowering Nigerian children to compete globally and excel throughout their lives."

Beyond academics, Afrilearn transforms learning into an exhilarating journey. Utilizing gamification, students are encouraged to compete with peers, earn points, and even generate income, all while enhancing their educational achievements.

Gabriel Olatunji-Legend, Co-founder and Head of Content at Afrilearn, highlighted the impact of their gamified approach, noting, "By integrating gamification, we inspire students to reach new heights and cultivate a lifelong passion for learning."

Afrilearn's innovative contributions to education have earned international acclaim, including the Digital Innovation of the Year award from the US Chambers and recognition as Africa's Top Education Innovation by the African Union. Endorsed by UNICEF for its pioneering methods, Afrilearn covers a wide spectrum of subjects, from sciences to arts, revolutionizing the educational experience for thousands of students nationwide.
