DigiClass is an online educational platform that enables sixth form and final year students in Burkina Faso to access online courses, exercises and private tutors.
The online resources include curriculum courses (maths, English, history, geography etc), exercises with answers, quizzes, a digital library, a collaboration app integrating audio and video communication, 2D and 3D animations and a self-assessment tool.
An intuitive dashboard enables each student to follow their progress according to a three-step methodology to learn, improve and evaluate their knowledge.
The platform also puts students in touch with private tutors for online or home tutoring.
In a country where the school enrolment rate is around 34,2 % (2015-2016), DigiClass complements traditional education provided by the State. The start-up aims to improve the education and pass rate of students taking the BEPC and BAC exams.
There is also a feasibility study for a mobile app underway.
