Telkom and Lightbulb Edtech Collaborate to Launch Innovative Online Learning Portal for High School Learners in KwaZulu Natal

Telkom Foundation, in partnership with Lightbulb Edtech, is set to transform the educational landscape in KwaZulu Natal with the launch of an advanced online learning portal, Lightbulb, tailored specifically for high school learners. The launch event is scheduled to take place on the 15th of May 2024 in eMondlo – Vryheid, featuring participation from 11 high schools in the area.

The collaboration between Telkom Foundation and Lightbulb Edtech brings forth a cutting-edge mobile learning management system and service, designed to empower educational institutions to provide customised online support services to their students. The online platform, Lightbulb, facilitates access to subject matter experts and digital resources, augmenting the learning experience and fostering academic excellence among users.

This nationwide educational initiative has already made significant strides in provinces such as Limpopo, Gauteng, Eastern Cape, and Western Cape, with countless learners benefitting from the platform’s undeniable advantages. Lightbulb covers a wide array of subjects, including English, Afrikaans, Mathematics, Natural Science, Physical Science, Geography, History, and Accounting, ensuring comprehensive support for high school students.

“We are excited to once again collaborate with Lightbulb Edtech to bring a transformative online learning platform to high school learners across South Africa enabling Telkom to contribute towards the future leaders of our country,” remarked Judy Vilakazi, Head of Telkom Foundation. “Education is a key driver of empowerment and development, and through this initiative, we aim to make quality educational resources accessible to all learners, regardless of their location or background.”

“At Lightbulb Edtech, we believe that to shape a brighter future, we must focus on the present. We cannot progress if half of us are left behind. Our goal is to facilitate transformative change through online education and training,” stated Allan Mushabe, CEO of Lightbulb Edtech.” We firmly believe in the power of education to change the world, and we see technology as the key to providing equitable access,” he affirmed.

At its core, Lightbulb is committed to providing a user-friendly, customisable, and interactive learning environment. With a three-tier support system in place, the platform aims to simplify the learning process and remove any barriers that students may encounter.

The Telkom Foundation’s commitment to education is further demonstrated through initiatives like the recent launch of Telkom Learn which not only addresses immediate educational needs but also paves the way for a more inclusive and prosperous future for all South Africans.

The launch event on the 15th of May promises to be a momentous occasion, marking the beginning of a new era in educational excellence for high school learners in KwaZulu Natal. Telkom Foundation and Lightbulb Edtech invite all stakeholders to join hands in embracing this innovative initiative and paving the way for a brighter future through the power of education and technology.
