ABOUT

AfriEDX is a multi-award-winning EduTech company that leverages immersive technologies. We provide continuous training and tools for more contextualized teaching materials and more active learning.

At AfriEDX, we look for innovatives technologies that can make an impact on the African community on a large scale. We master the technologies and apply them for the development and progress of the community as a whole. In short, the AfriEDX initiative demystifies technologies, as it is not always easy for non-technical people or decision makers to grasp the technologies and use their full potential. Our initiative is contributing to the development of new careers, businesses and education models.

We are achieving our mission by doing presentations, attending conferences, organising exhibitions and public demos across the African region. We also look for partners that can contribute positively to our ambitious initiative.

We build lasting relationships within our community both via online means and through personal contact and assistance.

What problem/solution we are trying to solve

We facilitate the individual’s inclusion in the social and economic development. To help our young learners obtain higher scores and a better success rate, we advocate a fusion of traditional forms of classroom teaching with more active based learning methods. We initiate and monitor the impact of the application of immersive technologies to reach our goal.

Immersive technologies is the next logical step in the evolution of visual learning. We improve the quality of teaching because we advocate the implementation of immersive technologies to complement traditional classroom teaching methods. Teachers will thereby enhance their pedagogical tools to render their lessons more engaging because of the active participation of learners.

Immersive technologies is the medium that can enhance learning by making it more memorable. For example, Nqileni Village, the home of the Bulungula Incubator, is so remotely located that students are not exposed to the wider world. Virtual Reality is giving children the opportunity to explore the world and “travel” for the very first time. Students might have difficulties grasping the concept of a volcano looking at 2D photographs in school textbooks, especially if they live where volcanic eruptions are unknown. VR is a fantastic way to “immerse” students in their lesson.


Learning in Africa: because through immersive technologies with our AfriBox platform (currently under development), subject contents will be accessible even where the internet is not accessible. Learning based on lessons available on the AfriBox platform will allow teachers to bring innovation in their classrooms, rendering the learning process more motivating. It will definitely introduce buoyancy which will require a new style of classroom management.

We ensure young people have the skills they need to succeed because our educational technology will eliminate the mismatch between presently unadapted curricula and the demands of the job market. The application of immersive technologies in education will help decrease the “completion and failure rates”, gradually impacting drop-out rate.
