CAPE TOWN, 20 February 2019
Limited access to digital tools due to cost restrictions, a lack of technical know-how, and device integration restrictions have been consistent problems for educational institutions in emerging markets. To tackle this problem head on and to give schools the opportunity to explore digital learning at no cost, Snapplify has released a free version of their Engage e-learning platform – known as Basic Engage.
Schools can register online and investigate the applications of the platform for themselves, inviting staff, educators and students to have a look around, too. The platform is fully customisable to suit individual institutions’ needs.
Administrators are able to manage user access, and educators can share teacher-created, multimedia resources with their students using the Resources and Groups functions. Librarians can curate a robust, 24-hour access digital library that promotes reading and learning with thousands of free ebooks and study resources to choose from, such as past exam papers, children’s books, sheet music, plays, biographies and more.
All ebooks and resources are accessed through the Snapplify Reader app that has broad device integration, and allows for offline use.
To date, Snapplify has worked with over 1000 schools across Africa who now have access to world-class tools they need to collaborate, innovate and thrive. Snapplify has been recognised internationally for their innovations, winning two prestigious awards at the 2019 Reimagine Education Conference in San Francisco and receiving recognition in the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘Companies to Inspire Africa’ report twice in a row.
Snapplify is at the forefront of edtech solutions in Africa and specialises in enabling digital learning for individuals and institutions by establishing a marketplace for digital education content, related educational services, and devices.
As a pan-African edtech company, Snapplify strives for radical inclusion to level the playing field and equip individuals across emerging markets with the world-class tools they need to collaborate, innovate and thrive.
Since its establishment in 2012, the company has grown and expanded into new markets in Africa and the United States, with offices across South Africa, as well as in Nairobi, Amsterdam and New Jersey.
