Educatial launches SaaS platform to redefine e-learning among African youths

Educatial, an Edtech startup has officially launched its software-as-a-service (SaaS) which is targeted at redefining electronic learning, creating great institutions, and unlocking the potential of Africa’s youth population.

According to the company, the platform is built to simplify the management of educational institutions, offering a suite of powerful software tools that streamline daily operations, improve student outcomes, and enhance the overall learning experience.

Francis Muofunanya, Chairman and Founder of Educatial said: “We believe that Educatial will engage the youths and help them acquire the relevant skills that will empower them to play at the global stage and hence curb excessive migration to other developed countries otherwise known as Japa in search of better education and good paying jobs.”

“We have through Educatial developed 20 uniquely different but interconnected educational tools that are engaging, effective, impactful, and fun but at the same time are useful in community-led learning,” he said.

Educatial is the result of dedicated research into making the pursuit of education more accessible and manageable for students, educators, and the government.

The present generation of pupils, even in the remotest villages in Nigeria have limited knowledge about the black slate, android phones, e-learning tablets, laptops, and other modern gadgets are now available to students to aid their studies.

However, emphasis has shifted from predominantly physical classrooms as centres of learning to online classrooms on smartphones and other devices of the user.

As more learning happens online, education is overwhelmed and in need of a learning ecosystem that provides a unified solution to all aspects of learning.

In addition, Educatial will birth young professionals in media, filmmaking, and other content-creation hubs. Universities and other educational institutions will be able to exponentially increase their internally generated revenues through some of our digital bouquets without taxing students and their guardians.
