e-Learning goes to Kenyan schools

A mobile e-learning initiative using tablet PCs is being piloted at two schools in Nairobi.

The eLimu programme, in partnership with Samsung, is being piloted at Kawangware and Mathare.

It delivers multimedia e-learning content to tablet PCs, to make learning more engaging and interactive.

eLimu incorporates content correlating to the national curriculum vamped up with animations, videos, songs, music, games and quizzes to make the learning process more interactive, interesting, fun and engaging for students.

eLimu says the Beta programmes in Kawangware and Mathare are being monitored for learning outcomes in test scores, cognitive thinking and focus, social and environmental consciousness and IT literacy.

Samsung Electronics East Africa says the Samsung tablets and the eLimu application are simply designed to enable children to easily use them.

It is expected that the digital learning solution will be rolled out to other schools in Kenya later this year.
