Telkom subsidiary BCX has launched a digital learning platform, providing free access to online educational content in the fields of science and technology.
Learners, educators, school administrators and parents will be able to access the material at BCXLearn.com.
“Learners will have free access to education services and tools, as well as all the material in the standard national curriculum — from grades 4 to 12,” said CEO Ian Russell in a statement. The website will also feature supplementary interactive educational material.
The platform gives schools the opportunity to create their own websites and tailor-make content to suit their environment, also at no cost.
Access to BCXLearn.com through the Telkom network and mobile will also be zero rated, meaning no data charges will be incurred.
“BCXLearn.com was designed to tackle the challenges that currently face the South African basic education system,” said Russell. “We’re technology optimists, and we hold a long-term view of what it will take to enable success in South Africa; technology needs to lead the way.” — (c) 2017 NewsCentral Media
