    Hello, your post clearly covers our model. I’m the Team Lead/Learning Technologist on tutor.ng and I’ll like to shed some light on our model. The reality in Africa is that the current traditional brick and mortar systems can barely cater for 20% of the population willing to learn especially in Nigeria. The Tutor.ng model is one created with the students in mind but driven by Tutors. This focus helps us work closely with tutors in ensuring they deliver quality content and makes us more comfortable promoting the courses directly to prospective students. The tutors on their own part have the discretion of making it free (mostly for personal public promotion) or monetized and most importantly we encourage them to blend it with their existing traditional brick and mortar tutoring model to increase their impact. They are also primarily responsible for promoting their courses while we offer easy remittance for course fees. We believe this will also help with the unemployment issues facing Nigeria and in a larger perspective Africa.
    On the other hand, certificate awarding institutions can use this platform to invite students to take their online/blended courses and showcase other products they have to offer in their respective institutions. They also enjoy the benefit of having a wider reach and creating more blended learning products.

      Hello Olaugun,
      Congratulations, Way to go, this is just but the beginning, I believe that the future e learning lies in Africa. Mr Olaugun would you mind sharing your email address please? I work for eduPad, a company that develops educational apps based on the curriculum. We are leader in educational apps in France and in the United States with over 2 million downloads.

    Baby steps but also great strides in the grand scheme of things for Nigeria.

    I believe this is only the start of the development and growth of elearning and online learning in Nigeria and indeed in Africa. Not surprised because Nigeria has always been a leader in Africa, and once a leader, always a leader!
