South Africa has been bitten by the elearning bug. This global tech trend is becoming big even in developing countries. Last week saw a launch of an eLearning platform called Creel.
Creel is a product of a South African owned corporation by the name of Ukondla which provides digital learning solutions. It is one of few 100% black youth owned corporations in that field. The corporation started the process of formulating an eLearning interface called Creel ELS and completed version 1.1 in February 2013.
Ukondla brought a unique angle to its eLearning platform by channeling it to address the needs of entrepreneurs. Hence, all the elearning modules presented on the eLearning portal of Creel are directed towards entrepreneurship.
Ukondla has also employed a very unique business model that ensures that there is relevant content that will compliment the portal. It has formulated a strategic alliance with a fast growing Cape Town based training company called InnovateBiz. This is to ensure that there is constantly relevant content that will make the portal further favourable and value adding.
On the 12th of March 2013 the alliance launched the first eLearning module on Creel titled Successful Business Planning. This module aims to satisfy the growing demand of entrepreneur to develop business plans that will assist them to secure funding and investments. The launch of this module marked the official launch of Creel and the tech revolution of how entrepreneurs are going to receive skills and knowledge. It is a great shift from workshops and the times of traffic. With the increased use of tablets and smartphones, entrepreneurs can now have education on their finger tips.
