We’re a leading e-learning platform that offers users across learning levels an accessible classroom on the go.
In 2003, Cecil Nutakor was a frustrated student who wanted to pass his high school exams. He had failed them more than once and wanted to test his readiness to sit them again. His battle with outdated teaching methods resulted in his development of eCampus, an edtech tool that has since expanded to twenty countries.
When the platform launched in 2006, it was hard for students, professors and the target market to understand the benefits of e-learning. Cecil also encountered challenges accessing funding, and technology infrastructure was hard to come by. But he persisted, and today, eCampus users can access digitized learning materials ranging from grade school to tertiary education level. Students can also test their own exam preparedness via artificial intelligence. Corporations use eCampus as a training tool for employees, and tutors can also offer their services on the platform. eCampus can be accessed through a browser or mobile app. There is a subscription fee to access some premium subjects and courses, but the Freemium courses are available without a charge. By providing a variety of online learning materials to anyone with internet access, eCampus bridges the gap for those who want to learn but may not have the resources to study in a traditional way.
eCampus was initially self-funded. In 2009, its first angel investor came on board, and between 2014 and 2018 the company received $200,000 from various angel investors.
