Passnownow, a new e-learning community app targeting Nigerian teenagers and secondary school students, wants to use mobile technology to revive learning among young people, its creators have said.
The app recently launched in Lagos includes daily classwork notes from JSS1 – SSS3 on all subjects, exam revisions and past questions, a chat room, a school forum and news on sports, entertainment, tech, sex education and more.
“You can also download the Passnownow app on your mobile phones now. The passnownow mobile app is available for download on phones from Passnownow.com,” Toyosi Akerele, CEO of Rise Networks, the creators of Passnownow, said.
The company’s vision is that the future of education is mobile and children do not have to be confined to physical spaces for effective learning.
“Beyond that, technology is a leveller and should be seen as a complementary tool for the revitalization of Nigeria’s education sector,” she said.
