1.5 million Students targeted by LoHo learning platform

By Antynet Ford

1.5 million Students in over two hundred schools across the country are expected to benefit from the launch of a digital learning platform (Loho Learning) after a successful pilot this week with a partnership between Safaricom and Longhorn Publishers.

The students will receive Safaricom-assembled learning tablets in a deal that aims to scale up digital learning across the country.

Safaricom will assemble the tablets, provide data connectivity, and offer insurance in case of loss.

A tablet and the digital learning package will cost Sh13,000, which is payable in monthly installments for a year.

The LoHo platform is accessible through both standard Web browsers and Safaricom-assembled tablets.

The LoHo Learning tablets have internet connectivity that blocks access to non-educational content, ensuring children’s safety.

“This platform offers a comprehensive suite of features tailored for learners, teachers, and partners, providing access to diverse educational content from multiple publishers and content developers,” said James Ong’ang’a, the CEO of LoHo Learning.

Early this week, the platform made its pilot at Blooming Flowers Academy and later this year it is expected to be launched in Uganda with Botswana and Ghana expecting it by 2025.

Content creators who develop educational content will sign revenue-sharing to monetize their content, ensuring a sustainable ecosystem for educational content development and distribution.

The initiative comes after the telco announced plans to expand production beyond the assembly of smartphones.

Safaricom’s phone assembly plant, East Africa Device Assembly Kenya Limited, began operations in October last year and is operated as a joint venture between Safaricom, TeleOne, and Jamii Telkom.
