LearnAM’s offering and benefits to customers

LearnAM is one of the ground breaking products of ScholarX. It was created to bridge the digital and financial literacy gap in Africa by enabling its users learn in-demand skills that help them become independent and increase their earning potential.

LearnAM provides qualitative educational content in bit sized modules around digital and vocational skills, as well as personal development in localized languages (Currently pidgin, Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa). At the end of every module, users are prompted to complete an assessment to test comprehension and upon completion of some courses are connected to mentors, internships and demand for their newly acquired skills within our in house market

LearnAM is built to run on Android and KaiOS which are the operating system smart inexpensive feature phones utilize. We have secured significant partnerships for sales/distribution of these devices with Airtel, to persons who currently have no internet enabled devices and also secured a device financing model backed by VFD Bank that allows for installmental payment for devices where outright purchase proves daunting.
