Nigerian-based IT solutions firm, Softcom Limited in collaboration with Philips have plans underway to unveil its educational tablet, KNOWLEDGETAB later this month to the public for senior secondary school students in Nigeria.
The device is an Android 4.2 tablet computer in-built with e-library compromising 56 sets of textbooks, a virtual Classroom containing 51 high quality video tutorials and 15 hours of audio voiceovers, covering 823 textbook chapters and an Assessment Zone, containing over 29,000 simulated past questions covering a period of ten years.
The tablet also offers an array of extra-curricular material, including moral instruction, educational games, language lessons and health information. The project follows a successful pilot rollout in Osun State western Nigeria.
“The results we have seen from the first phase of the launch have been remarkable, we are very excited about the prospects of partnering with the Federal and state governments and school owners across the country to deliver this revolutionary interactive learning tool for the benefit of their students,” said Wale Ogundare, Softcom’s marketing lead.
The tablets will be at affordable prices allowing for significant savings on the cost of buying textbooks and tutorial questions since they will only need to update their KNOWLEGABLETABs.
