Education Technology firm pledges 40% gross revenue to support private school teachers in Nigeria
Rhos & Kappas Ltd, proprietor of the e-learning platform TACO announced Monday her intention to give 40% total revenue to private school teachers across the nation.
TACO (short for Take A Class Online) is a platform that offers senior secondary students alternative third term classes since schools remain shut to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic that is currently ravaging the world.
Responding to inquiries by our correspondent, the Managing Director of Rhos & Kappas Ltd, Rotimi Omolaja, said, “With confirmed cases in Nigeria now above 20,000, chances of opening schools any time soon is rather slim. For us, we feel the pains of private school teachers who either aren’t being paid fully, or as in most cases aren’t being paid at all, unlike their counterparts in the public sector. One can’t blame school owners either, because they aren’t earning too”.
“The gap made open by teachers’ inability to get back to work is what TACO seeks to fill,” he continued, “and hence our decision to give 40% of our gross sales back to these teachers to ameliorate the hardship they’re currently learning to cope with at this time”.
When asked how the company will identify teachers most hit by the current economic situation, Omolaja pointed out how difficult that would be. “I must say this was of concern to us initially, but eventually we decided to work hand-in-hand with these teachers, and this saw us adding a new functionality to our app allowing each private school teacher to refer learners to the TACO APP and earn 40% of the revenue from such sales. On the average, a teacher can hope to earn between sixty and a hundred thousand naira from referrals within one month. Other sales recorded outside the referral program is what we hope to throw open to other private school teachers based on public recommendations.”
On further inquiry, Mr Omolaja reeled out several benefits of the Taco e-learning app to students, most notable of which is its affordability.
365 days access to classes on taco.ng, which include instructional videos, class notes, and quizzes, are offered for as low as N50 to N100. Further cutting down on overall cost of learning on the platform, Taco allows learners to choose from three video qualities based on their internet speed and data budget. The classes may also be downloaded for in-app offline viewing. According to him, ” The education technology firm was envisioned to bring innovation, accessibility and affordability to education”.
Commenting on the development of e-learning in Nigeria, Omolaja posited that the lockdown has both inspired a focus on e-learning as well as mounted the pressure required to break every inertia. “We must, however, not let only a select few – the private school teachers – pay the price for the advancement that will benefit us all in the long run,” he added.
