Vodacom/Microsoft Launches e-Learning Platform

Vodacom Business and Microsoft SA have launched a digital education platform, Connected Digital Education,  in response to the growing need for affordable online learning solutions during the COVID lockdown. Online teaching and learning have surged globally due to the pandemic. Parents and pupils are becoming accustomed to the online learning space and more companies are offering a variety of e-resources to suit curriculum needs. Private firms have also seized opportunities in cyberspace education and have been offering multiple options. The Vodacom and Microsoft platform enables remote learning with affordable connectivity, also giving learners access to cost-effective data and educational apps and resources through the Vodacom Business Edu Data Bundle and Microsoft Office 365 Education, a cloud-based service which offers the key Microsoft productivity apps like Teams, OneNote, Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Educators will be able to continue to deliver classes to their learners, who can participate through chat or voice using a SIM card where access to Microsoft’s Teams meeting service is provided free of charge, allowing them to continue learning regardless of location or device they are using – be it an Android, iOS or Windows smartphone, tablet or laptop.
