An ultralight encoding technology to democratize video learning
The cost of internet data is the main barrier to video learning in emerging markets. For students living in regions with weak connections, DotLearn built an ultralight encoding technology enabling users to watch videos without broadband. With a basic smartphone, students can watch five hours of video for the cost of sending a single text message. The encoding process was developed by the start-up's founder during their studies at MIT.
The ed-tech start-up based in Nigeria offers a simple and effective technological tool to democratize access to online education for the populations who need it the most. DotLearn has also launched an app for Ghanaian teenagers to study for their WASSCE, the West African equivalent of SATs.
