A platform that helps students to take their VETA short courses through their mobile phones. This is a live and ongoing project we delivered for the Vocational Education and Training Authority (VETA) in collaboration with Airtel Tanzania.
The Airtel VSOMO app is used primarily for learning vocational technical skills
that has been constructed in a way that creates real value for program organizers,
participants and other stakeholders. VETA has 29 centers offering long and short-term courses.
Every year 15,000 students apply but VETA can only accommodate 4,000 students.
Airtel and VETA in collaboration with Magilatech company decided to establish an app-based digitized learning and training platform, VSOMO.
Anyone can download and register for free, in both Swahili and English.
The course is split between theory (40%) and practical (60%).
Users complete the theory portion on the app and register at the nearest VETA center to complete the practical section.
VETA’s app content is mostly static pictures, but VETA is exploring audio and video material.
We currently have over 60,000 users.
