Schools may be opening but parents are wary of sending their kids back into the classroom.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown, there are demands for accessing affordable and readily available online learning platforms in South Africa.
Huawei Cloud and Dynamic DNA have collaborated to launch an integrated digital learning platform in response to the education challenges in South Africa, especially in rural areas. These two organisations are delivering solutions that addresses short-term and long-term needs for the entire education sector, from primary school to tertiary level.
Huawei Cloud and Dynamic DNA say that their platform does not only aim to enable remote learning connectivity at affordable costs, but also give learners access to educational tools, apps and resources. The platform is efficient on data consumption, 2MB is all that is required to connect and study materials are accessible offline. This platform aims to eradicate or reduce the education inequality in the private and public learning institutions. This will ensure that rural, public and private schools can have equal access to the learning opportunities and learning content delivery.
Through the platform, educators can continue delivering classes virtually to their learners through live sessions, learners can participate via chat, voice and video, allowing them to continue learning regardless of location or device, they are using – be it an Android, iOS or Windows smartphone, tablet or laptop.
Dynamic DNA will provide technical support and training to educators, administrators and learners on how to navigate the LMS platform.
While it is hard to tell exactly what the future of schooling will look like, the coronavirus has shown that digital platforms, which can act as online classrooms, need to be readily and affordably available to avoid unexpected schooling disruptions.
Dynamic DNA is committed to supporting the digitalisation of education in SA and believe that through investing in education, they are investing in the long-term economic growth and prosperity of the country.
