Introducing Tutor.ng: a new online learning platform

EntrepreneurCountry Global Tuesday, 08 July 2014.

Africa's digital startup community has long battled with its unique internet challenges (penetration currently stands at just 16%), but the best entrepreneurs have always found a way through. That's certainly been the case for the latest David to enter the ring - Nigerian online learning platform Tutor.ng. The fledgling company has impressive aspirations to change the way people are educated in Nigeria and, eventually, across the whole of the African continent.

shutterstock 159961910 1In a nutshell, Tutor's innovative system allows tutors to market their courses at a price of their choosing - an educational spin on the sharing economy. Language courses have so far proven to be the most popular, but the site has already expanded to business classes, computer programming and fashion styling. When a tutor is ready to share their skills, they have access to the sophisticated Tutor.ng digital platform, which provides its contributors with a smart suite of tools including online whiteboards, documents and e-classrooms.

According to co-founder Fehintolu Olaogun, his vision is for the company to stem the stream of people leaving Nigeria to learn elsewhere. "Our current education system can't meet demand," he says. And the statistics confirm this - from a standing start in January this year, 5,000 people have already registered with the platform, out of which 2,000 are active users.

Based on this early success, it's only a matter of time before a Goliath with similar aspirations spots the huge potential of Tutor.ng, and takes education in Africa to a whole new level.
