Start-up Stories – Chalkboard Education
Mobile learning made easy
Chalkboard Education is a mobile SMS-based e-learning service for Ghanaian and Ivorian students who cannot attend university.
Chalkboard makes it easier for students to access education.
Often, universities don't have the capacity to welcome every student.
In order to solve this problem, the start-up gives students access to courses that lead to a qualification from local partner institutions, via their smartphones, and without having to use the internet.
Professors can put their lessons online so students can follow them at home.
