Econet Wireless Zimbabwe launched a digital learning platform called Ruzivo, an online interactive digital learning platform targeted at both primary and secondary students to complement government’s efforts in providing education resources to help improve the pass rate. It is the first such on-line educational portal to be launched in Zimbabwe.
Ruzivo contains locally developed digitalised academic content including interactive lessons, exercises and tests. The packages can be used both in the classroom for lessons and at home for revisions and once a child gets started, Ruzivo will keep his or her progress in all exercises and tests.
All the content is aligned to the Zimbabwean curricula and grade 4, 5, 6, 7 mathematics and science content has been endorsed by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Curriculum Development Unit (CDU).
Launching Ruzivo, Econet Wireless CEO Mr. Douglas Mboweni said, “At Econet we believe that investing in the education of our children is key to unlocking the nation’s economic prosperity across all sectors. Zimbabwe is rated amongst the top literate countries in Africa and we would like to see that great achievement maintained for this and future generations.”
“Ruzivo offers affordable access to quality education for learners. We have developed Ruzivo as a low cost-high quality education model which is accessible across the country,” he said.
