Tell us about your idea

The idea is about building a global e-learning website for all the students over the world in supporting the efforts of Ebonyi State’s radio and TV learning. This idea will help students to learn at their own pace, and also students who do not have access to the live tutorial on radio and TV due to geographical coverage, it will also student who do not hear their radio and TV teachers very well. Above all, it will assist student to chat with their teacher one on one.

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

1. Providing equitable access to learning materials and devices. 2. Providing support for students with specific learning needs (students with disabilities, English learners, students in temporary housing) 3. Making meals available to students who rely on free and reduced breakfast and lunch. 4. Connecting families to other services they may need. 5. Helping students who are already behind from falling further behind.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

My name is Nwevo Chimezie N. I am inspired to share this idea as a result of difficulties of accessing the live radio and TV tutorials or materials by the students who are not available to listen at the live radio or TV lessons and also students who want to hear those tutorials over and over again and also students who can't have access to the live radio & TV lesson due to the geographical coverage, but with the use of this idea students can learn at their pace any thing, anywhere in the world simply by visiting the e-learning website and get those uploaded lessons on the website.

it's a great idea, I like the fact that students will be able to access material and learn at their own pace even if there are challenges from preventing them from learning realtime.
I'm curious to learn if students could download the material they need to view offline? Would the website have an app component for mobile devices?

students can download the materials using any devices even with their phones and they will view it offline as many times as possible
Yes, there is mobile app component of it.
