The new campaign that will last for a month targets at encouraging students and private school owners to continue using online platforms in teaching and school management respectively.

Inet Company Limited’s Managing Director, Ephraim Swilla said in Dar es Salaam over the weekend that through the its ShuleSoft application, the company wants school owners to continue uploading lectures and also use the application to receive school fees and truck students’ performance.

“Students need to visit our website and register to enjoy live streaming of teaching sessions. The company has been running the ShuleSoft learning platform since its inception in 2017 and has been working with more than 400 private schools,” said Swilla.

According to him, the company has been able to reach more than 100,000 students mostly from private schools and that following the Covid-19 outbreak which forced government to close down schools last March, the company launched a free learning system.

“Our system allows over 100,000 users at one time to access the platform and deliver live streams both in English and Kiswahili. The ‘Rudi shulenaShuleSoft’ thus enables students, teachers and parents to interact at real time hence discuss issues to improve delivery of lessons” he explained.

The Inet Managing Director further noted that with ShuleSoft, the platform also allows continued assessment reports, consolidated sheets, position, average, ranking and gives streams reports at real time.

“It enables sending messages and reminders to parents and teachers with just one click, thus making it easier for parents and guardians to monitor their children’s progress in real time,” he added noting that apart from being a learning system, ShuleSoft is integrated with NMB Bank Plc to enable respective schools take note of school fees of their students while allowing parents and guardians to pay digitally using mobile phones.
