There has been a lot of buzz lately, about the e-learning platform, Roducate. So, we took a deep dive, into what Roducate has to offer. In this article, we will focus on the platform’s solution, for schools.
Everything schools need is on Roducate. Schools can create their own platform on Roducate that mirrors the site’s main platform. The platform comes with a suite of features: Lecture Notes, Videos, Podcasts, Practice Assignments, Mock Exams and My Network–a chat function, within the app, for communication between teachers and students and among students.

Schools can subscribe to the app as a software solution only and upload their own content to any of the features. Schools can also use the platform’s content and even customize it to suit their students’ needs. It gives schools access, to a Content Management System that allows schools to upload their own content or customize Roducate’s content.
Roducate’s content is rich, diverse, and carries curriculum-based contents for primary, secondary, and tertiary education. It offers all the basic subjects, such as Maths and English and the not so basic subjects such as Agricultural Science and Visual Arts. All content is approved, by the Nigerian Education and Research Development Council, Nigerian Universities Commission, Lagos State Ministry of Education, JAMB, and the African Union.
Access to a school’s platform is restricted to only the school’s students, through an access code. This access code can serve the secondary purpose of ensuring that only students that have paid the school for the service can enjoy it.

Roducate’s solutions, do not stop there. The company has, even taken a crack at solving the problem of students who do not have internet-enabled devices. It currently offers three types of devices: a 2.8” screen KaiOS smart feature phone, a 4-inch screen Android tablet phone, and 7-inch screen Android tablet, all preloaded with the full Roducate app. The devices also come with data.
The KaiOS smart feature phone comes with a Lite version of the app—Lecture Notes, Practice Assignments, and Mock Exams—and continuous access to the app is at no additional cost. The other devices come with the full version of the app and for a termly subscription students get access to their school’s Roducate platform. From the comfort of their homes, students can remain engaged with their teachers.
What impressed us the most is that, for a modest additional cost, Roducate offers a solar panel to charge the devices so kids have no more excuses that electric power is off. Truly, with Roducate, learning never stops.
