Abuja - A revolutionary mobile learning technology service, Sterio.me is seeking partnerships with stakeholders in the educational and telecoms sectors in the country ahead of its planned launch in April this year.
Sterio.me founded by the StartupBus Africa and led by Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Pruijsen, is a mobile learning service for primary and secondary educators that uses technology to enhance learning.
The service engages learners outside the classroom, to reinforce in-classroom learning.
It uses an interactive audio lesson, which is pre-recorded by the Educator and delivered via an sms-triggered inbound voice call to the learner, in order to reinforce in-classroom content.
The service is already available in some African countries including Tanzania and Kenya.
Ahead of plans to make inroads into Nigeria's burgeoning market, Christopher Pruijsen said his platform is still looking for partners in the government circle, telecoms section and the educational sector.
He said the company had to secure a worthy partner for the launch but that efforts were still being made to market the service to possible partners.
Pruijsen said the company was considering one of the established names in the telecoms sector to power the service which he hoped would bring a new experience in ways students learned.
He added that the rapid increase in the use of mobile phones and the growth in mobile internet in the country made Nigeria a good market for the service.
He also noted that the learning platform was free for both the educators and the learners while data collected will be shared freely with local and national governments and ministries.
For the initial pilot service, Pruijsen said the company would need only to work with a maximum of five schools for an intense programme during which they would test the technology with teachers and learners.
