Ruzivo Digital Learning is an online interactive digital learning platform targeted at primary and secondary students in Zimbabwe.
Initially launched targeting pupils in Grades 4 to 7 in February last year, Ruzivo Digital Learning progressed swiftly to add content for Grades 1 to 3 within the same year. The new development will now see pupils accessing more subjects including Ndebele and Shona up to Grade 7.
Econet Wireless CEO Douglas Mboweni said, "Through the use of technology, we endeavour to transform our society and today we are pleased to announce the addition of new subjects to Ruzivo as follows; Ndebele, Shona, Home Economics, Social Studies and Religious and Moral Education, all offered up to Grade 7. The platform has already seen thousands of children and schools coming on board," he said.
Access to the Ruzivo content is currently FREE meaning that there are no subscription fees to access the learning materials. The site is also zero rated for Econet broadband users therefore one does not need data to access the platform. All one needs is a device with internet connectivity.
