We were moved by the number of children who are eager to go to school but have no access to education. especially with the rise of e-learning platforms due to the pandemic more children couldn't access formal education. So we have focused on building an e-USSD service that can be connected to an e-learning platform.
What it does
We have created a USSD service that is connected to an e-learning platform. Student can be able to
- Register on the platform.
- Change language (English and Swahili)
- Receive bit-sized lectures
- Share attendance
- Answer quizzes and trivial.
How we built it
We build it using Africa'sTalking USSD API service.
Challenges we ran into
Our challenges are as follows:
- Learning curve with Africa's talking API
- Teammates availability
- Dealing with errors from API
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are happy that
- The USSD service is working and can be demoed
- USSD service can connect to an e-learning database.
What we learned
We have learned how to work with APIs, Azure DevOps, and Team collaboration
What's next for EduAfrica
We would like to continue integrating the USSD service into an e-learning platform
