Education whether formal or informal is a major tool that will help liberate Africa from her numerous problems. Technology enhanced Education or learning offers greater opportunity for Nigeria as a developing country.

It shows great hope for the country seeing many young people who are passionate and willing to contribute their quota towards this, speaking with Sam Iso last night, he did explain to me what he is doing with his team to enhance learning. His startup is called Testbox and I feel this is worthy of mentioning.

“TestBox is an exciting new way for students to test their knowledge, share crowd-sourced study materials and prepare for exams on their PC even without an internet connection. This tool will help education in Nigeria by allowing students download and distribute, via any storage device, past exams and study materials(e-books) for use on their computer and also allows educators upload materials online for use by their followers and other students. Using crowd sourcing, we intend having a large database of tests and e-Books that will be available for downloads mostly for free!”said Iso Samuel.
