eLimu

eLimu is an award-winning interactive, engaging and fun application for children in the Kenyan Primary School education system to learn and revise for their exams. We incorporate animations, videos, songs, music, games and quizzes into the content from a leading local textbook publisher. The application can be deployed on any Android smartphone or tablet with 3G or Wireless connectivity in order to facilitate Q&As; with teachers and collaborative learning. In addition to the content of the 6 subjects, eLimu also contains content outside the national curriculum focussed on responsible citizenship and gradually shifting collective behavior towards a more sustainable lifestyle by covering topics such as environmental conservation, civic rights, human rights, community development, agriculture, etc. eLimu hopes to make a significant and positive long term impact on the Kenyan youth by improving their: test scores, cognitive thinking skills, social/environmental consciousness and IT literacy.
