MTN Zambia partners Copperbelt, Mulungushi, and the University of Zambia, three prominent universities in Zambia, to offer free access to various e-Learning platforms. The platform, according to the telecom firm, will help students adapt to learning from their homes, particularly at this critical time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to MTN Zambia, students from the three universities can have free access to the platform during this period. No extra cost on data will be incurred.
Mr. Bart Hofker, Chief Executive Officer, MTN Zambia, said, and I quote, “As the Covid-19 pandemic lingers and affects the lives of people, MTN Zambia will do all it can to support its customers, who are fast adapting to homeschooling at this critical period. Just recently, we introduced E-Tutor App for young learners to access online lessons, including past questions since their exams are just around the corner.
Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Zambia, Mr. Seun Soladoye, also added that “MTN Zambia is building on the success achieved with the E-Tutor application. We are partnering top universities in the country to offer free access to online learning platforms. However, we hope this new platform will help to enhance the quality of education in the country and ensure that students don’t lose out on valuable time, as the COVID-19 pandemic lingers.
Because of this partnership, students in the various universities – Copperbelt University, University of Zambia, and Mulungushi University, can access their multiple E-learning platforms free of charge. The only criteria are that one needs to have an active MTN SIM card and an internet-enabled device to access the free package.
