The tech space for education has reached new heights as the Afrilearn mobile app becomes freely accessible to primary and secondary school students across Nigeria and beyond.
This was contained in a statement released Wednesday, February 3, 2022 by Afrilearn.
Founded in 2019, Afrilearn offers children ages 6 to 18 free, fun and world-class education for best grades in school and competitive exams such as the West African High School Certificate Exam (WASSCE), l Unified Tertiary Maturity Exam (UTME), National Examination Council (NECO) and others.
Afrilearn also tracks each student’s progress with detailed analysis to help each student identify their strengths and areas for improvement.
“Some children learn best by watching videos, others by reading class notes, others by solving practical problems, and still others by social collaboration.
By design, the platform has been specially designed to give each child the freedom to learn using the unique methods that work best for them. “ said Isaac Oladipupo, co-founder / CEO of Afrilearn.
He further stated this “Our innovative e-learning platform offers richly animated and curriculum-based video lessons, lecture notes, practice exercises, live lessons, a personalized learning dashboard and many other learning resources.”

Thanks to its seamless learning experience, the award-winning educational streaming startup has organically reached over 486,032 students, with more than fifty thousand gamified quizzes, five thousand curriculum-specific class notes and over three thousand video lessons.
According to Gabriel Olatunji-Legend, Afrilearn co-founder / content manager, “In addition to helping students fill learning gaps with trusted content from expert tutors, with its many cutting-edge features, Afrilearn also enables teachers, schools and parents to effectively accelerate learning outcomes.
Our goal is to enable students to study at their own pace in and out of the classroom, using any device. “
Recounting his experience, a secondary school teacher, Taiye Ojuolape noted, “As a history teacher, Afrilearn saves me a lot of time in accessing useful learning materials. The contents are very comprehensive and the app display is so intuitive and easy to navigate. The resources have contributed to exponentially increase my involvement in the classroom “.
Isabella Onuwa, a student of a secondary school in Lagos, also attested to this “For the first time ever, I got the right A in exams. All thanks to the exciting free hands-on exercises on the Afrilearn app. This is definitely the fastest way to get past WAEC, NECO, JAMB and I’m still surprised it’s absolutely free. “
Oladipupo stressed, “It is very unfair to expect a changed Nigeria without first educating Nigerians. Without quality education and opportunities, our citizens cannot overcome prejudices.
Unfortunately, our brick and mortar education system is neither accessible nor sustainable. Having witnessed this firsthand in our formative years, Gabriel and I quit our lucrative jobs in 2018 to solve this problem by leveraging technology. “
Widely described as the Netflix of education for African youth, 94% of students using Afrilearn say they have achieved higher school grades, greater confidence, and exam success according to the founders.
