List of best Online Learning Platforms in Uganda

Government advised schools and universities to continue with e-learning studies for at least 3 more months. During these times where e-learning has become the norm, its important to know which e-learning platforms in Uganda you can access for online classes. In Uganda there are a number of platforms for students at various levels where they can study, access material for revision and even do tests and we have compiled a list. E-learning (sometimes called web-based training) is anywhere, any-time instruction delivered over the internet or a corporate Intranet to browser-equipped learners. List of best Online Learning Platforms in Uganda

Here is a List of best Online Learning Platforms in Uganda

Gayaza High School | eLearning Platform

Gayaza High School is a trailblazer when it comes to e-learning in Uganda. The all-girls high school is a Pathfinder school affiliated to Microsoft Partners in Learning for Schools programme.

The Gayaza High School eLearning Platform was launched in 2010 spearheaded by Ronald Ddungu, the school deputy headteacher. The school uploads free to access exercises, classroom notes, video tutorials, audio podcasts and resource links.

Here is the full list of subjects covered on the platform:

Mathematics, Sub Maths, Additional Maths, Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry, Christian Religious Education, Commerce, Computer Science, Economics, English, Fine Art, Foods & Nutrition, French, General Sciences, Geography, German, History, Home Economics, Kiswahili, Literature In English, Music, Physical Education, Physics, Science

Revise Now

As the name hints at, Revise Now is a treasure chest of past papers in PLE, UCE and UACE going as far back as 30 years. All examinable subjects are included (apart from Fine Art) for your revision. Unfortunately, the correct answers don’t come with. Luckily, as the revision is done at home, the student is expected to have their own study notes on hand.

Exam Uganda

Exam Uganda is a simplistic barebones (still has ipsum lorem in the About section) e-learning platform concentrating on the revision of exam papers. The platform offers three Science exams apiece in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Airtel Uganda has made Exam Uganda free to access even without an active internet connection. With a slogan saying, “Stay Away from Corona Virus. Attempt Exams Online,” who can resist paying Exam Uganda a visit.

Cyber School Technology Solutions

Cyber School Technology Solutions takes a different tact. Instead of being open-source, a school has to lease/hire the e-learning platform at an annual fee of UGX 100,000. Some of the schools on board include Nabisunsa, Gayaza, Makerere College to mention a few.

The core subjects comprise Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Below is the full list of the package according to the Cyber School website:

  • School assessment.
  • Science and Math Teacher training.
  • Software delivery and installation.
  • Follow-up Training of the teachers inside the school / in class.
  • Digital Science/Virtual lab coordinator training.
  • Student training (a representative from each class).
  • Regular follow-up school visits.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of use of software including calculation of changes in grades.
  • Termly Progress in Schools Meetings with Head Teacher, DoS, Science Teachers, Super Teachers and Lab Attendants.
  • Regular Super teacher Brush Up training.
  • Helpdesk.
  • Software and hardware maintenance & repair.
  • Give advice on procurement of additional hardware for the schools.
  • Upgrading of the software (new and improved versions).
  • One CSTS staff member allocated to follow your school to give you personal service (as per the above).

Yaaka Digital Learning Network

Not to be confused with UMEME’s Yaka, Yaaka Digital Learning Network is one of the most comprehensive repositories of Ugandan education resources. The courses encompass pre-primary, primary, O’Levels, A’Levels, Tertiary, University, Post Graduate, and Skills Development.

Whilst most course units are free and open-source, Yaaka monetises some aspects of their platform. If you wish to download the audio podcasts and video tutorials, you are required to pay a modest sum. I consider this a fair deal. Yaaka has an ensemble of teachers creating all this content. A little compensation for their time and effort isn’t out of order. Institutions, teachers and parents are welcome to jump on board.

Passuneb.com

Passuneb.com is an e-learning platform which started out as a repository of UNEB past papers for PLE, UCE and UACE (hence the name). Since 2014, Passuneb.com has assisted primary students, O’Level and A’Level students to pass their exams through revision of set questions along with their answers. Of late, the platform also provides an online self-test, and e-library, a virtual lab, career guidance, and current affairs.

Walktrack Edu Platform

Walktrack Edu Platform provides free and open-source education resources for students and teachers alike. The platform is the brainchild of Emmanuel Angoda, a seasoned educator at Lira Town College and All Saints University Lango.

The education resources in question comprise secondary school and university study material but with a bias for secondary schools. These include classroom notes, Powerpoint presentations, Question & Answer booklets, short books, Computer studies and ICT files, and Past papers in UCE and UACE. As of University resources, you get a little of this and that in Degree, Diploma and Certificate courses.

Kolibri

Kolibri was introduced by NITA-U in partnership with UNICEF as a free e-learning platform accessible to everyone. It provides content approved by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC). It covers subjects for O’level students with well presented illustrations and videos that can improve the learner’s experience. It only requires access through the internet and gadgets like a smartphone, laptop or tablet. On logging in, the student has four options; Secondary school, Youth Center, Funza, and Ministry of Education and Sports & Kyambogo University. Go to e-learning.education.go.ug
