M-Shule is the first personalized, mobile learning platform in Africa to empower every learner in Africa through adaptive learning and SMS.
Meaning “mobile school” in Swahili, M-Shule’s platform uses AI to provide personalized training, life skills information, and data tracking over SMS and chatbots. Learners access instructional, academic or vocational content on the most basic phones, with no need for smartphones or internet. The adaptive platform uses SMS interactions to deliver self-development tools, personalized lessons and micro-courses that adjust topics and pathways to users’ individual needs, backgrounds and performance.
For educational training, learners receive harder content as they do well or easier content if they need to build foundational knowledge. Their learning profile continuously updates their progress and selects the best next sets of content and information to maximize their potential. As learners interact, the platform analyzes data and delivers reports and analytics to key stakeholders and organizations through SMS and web. These insights allow organizations to save time in conducting M&E, identifying learner needs, and making better decisions to improve users’ economic opportunities and health situations.
By delivering an all-in-one learning and resource platform possible with the simplest feature phone, M-Shule unlocks new opportunities for millions across Sub-Saharan Africa.
