School Portal NG is Africa’s leading online learning and one of the world’s fastest-growing elearning websites. School Portal NG is a free elearning portal, specially designed to serve as an alternative means to the regular brick-and-mortar style of education for the less-privileged children or children born to low-income earners, adults who otherwise cannot afford to finance their way through school, as well as provide support to school children who need educational resources for further reading/learning. With School Portal NG, students have no need to buy study materials such as textbooks, or pay for lesson teachers and school fees; all materials and resources are offered for free.
School Portal NG was created in 2017 as a solution to the myriads of challenges young people face, especially the less-privileged, with obtaining quality learning contents, as well as not benefiting from free education programmes.
Schoolportalng.com has gained popularity among young people from across the world. Currently, according to Google Analytics data, School Portal NG covers 185 countries and 2086 cities in the world, with the largest number of students and teachers coming from Nigeria. We have provided thousands of lessons, courses, subjects, articles, past questions and answers to hundreds of thousands of students and teachers in Nigeria and across the globe.
According alexa.com, School Portal NG ranked from 891,030 to 193,713 most visited website in the world within the last 90 days, a positive increase in traffic statistics by over 494,000, and we are gaining popularity by the day.
School Portal NG is about helping millions of less privileged people (especially the youth, secondary school students, uneducated adults, drop outs and children in Sub-Saharan Africa and around the world) get a very robust free online education in anywhere, any day and any time.
About 263 million children are out of school, according to data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistic (UIS). This includes 61 million children of primary school age, 60 million of lower secondary school age, and including the first ever estimate of those of upper secondary school age at 142 million. In addition to this, there are many students that do not have textbooks for studies, to read, do homework or other educational tasks.
Children of Sub-Saharan Africa the most excluded – of all the regions, Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of exclusion. Over a fifth of children between the ages of 6 – 11 are out of school, followed by a third of youth between the ages of 12 – 14. According to UIS data, almost 60% of youth between the ages of 15 – 17 are not in school and in addition to this, some of those students do not have textbooks to study, do assignments, carry out projects or complete educational tasks
Girls still more likely than boys to never go to school – Girls are more likely than boys never to set foot in a classroom, despite all the efforts and progress made over the past two decades. According to UIS data, 15 million girls of primary school age will never get the chance to learn to read and write in primary school compared to about 10 million boys. Over half of these girls – 9 million live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
These findings are produced in a paper released jointly by the UNESCO Institution for Statistic and Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report. The paper also reveals the vast challenges faced by the poorest children (uis.unesco.org/en/news/263-million-children-and youth-are-out-school).
With this large challenges in our various societies today, We decided to create and built a free online online learning system called School Portal NG where every child has the rights to learn and be educated without paying a fee. Don’t forget that they are still millions of students that are in school but their parents can’t afford to buy textbooks or learning resources.
We developed this web-based electronic learning portal for all for free. It contains courses, lessons, notes, documentations, administrative works, courses delivery, online tests, online examinations, training programs, and subjects’ materials for learners and educators. You will agree with us that millions of parents strive so hard to pay for their children’s school fees and still cannot afford to buy them textbooks or learning materials due to harship in developing and underdeveloped countries. Even in some government schools if not all, where we have no school fees policy. Government still do not provide the children with free textbooks or learning materials.
Educators (teachers) in villages (rural areas) that do not have the privileges to attend quality educational seminars, workshops, training programmes or receive better lessons to give their students can now have access to lessons from this learning portal for free from educators in the cities that have attended such training/seminars/workshops. Contents here come from qualified educators with government-approved standards that match both national and international standards.
This school learning portal project will cover a wide range of courses and lessons such as sciences, arts, commercial lessons, management lessons, junior classes’ subjects, vocational courses, entrepreneur courses, algebra lessons, statistics, programming languages, mathematics, languages, fisheries, painting and decoration, computer craft, and lots of other learning materials.
I have tried to develop it up to the stage it is now but more work still need to be done. So I am here to ask for your support towards this project to give every child a free education through ICT. Let’s join hands together to train the less privileged children and other children in schools across globe.
If I can achieve this much alone, how much more can we achieve together! – A lot more.
Children will benefit from our elearning portal in various ways such as:
1. Organizes e-learning in one location (place)
2. Provides unlimited access to learning contents
3. Reduces learning and development time
4. Keep teachers and children up to date
5. Integrate social learning experience, technology leverage for better learning.
6. Engaged learning also increases because the learners have greater control and freedom over their lessons, online assessment.
7. Supports contents in various formats such as text, video, audio, etc.
8. Access materials any time and from anywhere.
9. Reduce learning and development cost
And lots more.
Today, more people worldwide own a cell phone than a toothbrush, according to the Consumer Technology Association (www.cta.tech).
There are over 20 billion devices connected to the internet today – that’s 3 devices for every single person on the planet! Which also include the uneducated people.
91% of mobile workers/people use their personal downtime to check their smart phones, and more than 60% percent of them sleep with their smart phones. With these statistics at hand, we plan to use the web, internet and the learners’ smart phones or learners’ parents smart phones to provide free education through different online learning contents such texts, videos, images, graphics, audios, illustrations, etc to reach the learners in anywhere in the world and across the globe.
School Portal NG Android App has text to speech feature for people with reading disabilities (e.g blind people, visual challenge children, physically challenge people, special children). We believe that everyone has equal rights to free education.
