Data Inequality – Eskilz College goes Dataless
Online learning is an obvious way to keep your studying going; however, only a few parents and students can consider buying bulk data to access learning material and completing online assessments and assignments. With the ever so increasing costs of life. We must find a balance.
More than half (or 51%) of youth aged 18–24 claimed that they did not have the financial means to pay for their tuition. Furthermore, 18% of those aged 18–24 who were not attending educational institutions indicated that their poor academic performance prevented them from participating. This is according to the “Higher Education and Skills in South Africa. Source STATS SA
With the new normal and taking into the consideration the South African economy, everything we do is moving towards the online platform that is shopping, learning, conducting your work etc. but not everyone can afford this.
Not only is there a huge amount of cash needed to study, students access loans that they usually end up paying over years. What does going Data-less mean to you? No more data costs, how great would it be to have an app that allows for that. Study online and access all your learning material and assignments with minimal data.
Eskilz College has recently launched a Data-less E Learning Portal. The system has uniquely been designed taking into consideration the current economic status of our country and how students access their learning portals together with some of the challenges they face.
When we created the app, we wanted to provide learners with cost-effective ways to engage and to deliver a richer learning experience, providing easy access to curriculum, events, grades and schedules.
Now a learner may study anywhere at any time. Visit our website and browse through hundreds of short courses and full qualifications. Eskilz College is a certified private college and offers accredited courses and qualifications.
