Whilst mobile penetration in Africa… · More is over 83%, basic phones still dominate with 62.7% having GSM-only phones and 27% having 2G phones . More than 60% of the global population is offline (1 in 6 Africans use the internet, 2013). Teachers frequently spend 10-20 hours per week on the homework process. In for example Uganda only 45% of the teaching day is spent teaching. We save teachers significant amounts of time by automating the homework preparation, distribution, marking and administration process.
We also have a native Android & Web app for more developing markets, the revenue of which sponsors the African implementation.
