Our Core Values
Challenges we address
There is a big gap in collaborative learning solutions in Uganda right now. Students only learn from their teachers through a face to face interaction but rarely learn from professionals in their learning field, from fellow students outside their circles, from other students in different institutions studying the same thing or from those who already studied the same thing. Knowledge sharing on a broad scale is basically nonexistent in our education system. From secondary school all the way to university, private consultancies and organizations like churches or mosques; there is no go-to solution for learner-centered, collaborative and networked learning.
On top of the above, many ventures into eLearning by various universities and institutions have failed and been rejected by teachers due to the complexity of the deployed systems.
Many companies and organizations in the country lack easy to use training systems for their employees needed for coaching and capacity building, the available systems are very expensive to install, customize or modify.
Our Solution - Somesa collaborative e-learning solution
We have developed an e-learning collaborative solution called Somesa (translates to ‘Teach’ in the Luganda language) to provide a rich blended and flipped classroom for educational institutions, consultancies and other organizations that engage in teaching & learning activities.
Somesa allows teachers/knowledge experts to share their knowledge through a publication of learning materials i.e. videos, podcasts, notes, downloadable files and for students to have access to the same in a very natural way. The rich discussion groups allow for communities to sprout out and make learning as engaging and fun as possible. Through our partnerships, we also intend to connect institutions to each other or to other companies so as to provide more learning channels for students.
