Blended learning is a wholesome approach to education that combines (traditional) classroom learning with (innovative) online learning techniques and resources, to improve learning and consistently deliver high levels of productivity. About two years ago, buoyed by significant success of blended learning in major countries around the world, Cyberfleet officially launched its Learning Management Software (LMS) called Klasconnect, to address crippling limitations of the traditional-only education system in Nigeria and Africa at large.
Klasconnect is a fully flexible, intuitive, and interactive LMS platform that promotes blended learning, while also bridging the gap between teachers/instructors and students, to enhance learning outcomes across primary, secondary, tertiary levels of education and other learning institutions.
Seeing as the on-going (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt the status quo of learning globally, immensely affecting learning outcomes of schools and academic calendars, there is heightened demand and adoption of blended learning solutions. Based on this, it is clear that our ways of life, particularly concerning education, will be forever changed. And this is why my team and I strongly believe that education in Nigeria during the post-COVID-19 era would significantly be in the form of blended learning.
Coincidentally, our platform — Klasconnect — is built to support this improved style of education, as certain challenges to the conventional learning practices in the country are carefully taken into consideration while developing this LMS solution.
- Difficulties experienced by teachers /instructors in dispatching assignments to students.
- Physical submission of assignments by students.
- Challenges of making course materials available to students being constrained by location, time, etc.
