Adoctus is bringing Harvard quality courses to Africa through eLearning. Education is the foundation on which Africa’s development is being built. At Adoctus, we have the vision to transform the delivery of quality education across the continent. Innovative learning solutions, like eLearning, is precisely what Africa needs to leap forward and reach its full potential.

We agree with the chief academic officer of the online learning platform, GetSmarter – Rob Paddock, who said the following: “We have to recognize that the educational need of modern working professionals has changed, modern careerist now have to become lifelong learners if they wish to stay relevant and advance their professional ambitions.” In Africa it has been difficult to meet the needs of these working professionals, because the education delivery approach has been an outdated one.

Luckily, we have come a long way. According to a report made by class central, more than 81 million students in South-Africa alone have enrolled in online courses since the beginning of 2011. eLearning allows millions to better their education without putting their jobs on hold; this might be the main reason for the astonishing amount of South-African online scholars.

Ambient Insight reports that the eLearning growth rate is higher in Africa than anywhere else in the world, yet the goal of education for every child in Africa has not been met. Adoctus, along with our preferred distributor, Africa X, presents solutions to bring Africa one a step closer to reaching this desired goal.

We are determined to overcome any challenges that the African content still faces every day, like slow internet speeds and the availability of locally developed content and online curriculums. Another goal we strive to achieve is replacing traditional classroom setups with online platforms. With that said, we want to assure all the teachers out there that they are not being replaced by technology; in fact, it is enabling them to enhance their work.

Adoctus is more than just another online learning platform that lacks the necessary accreditation. We offer courses from some of the top universities in the world, including Boston University, Harvard, The University of Queensland and many more. Instead of taking Africa to the rest of the world, we are bringing the rest of the world to our precious continent. A radical transformation of the African education system is about to happen, and no one should be left behind.

There’s an old saying that says if you give a hungry man a fish, he will be fed for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, he will have food for the rest of his life. We truly aspire to bring valuable skill sets within reach of those who need it the most.
