Some years back, the adoption of online learning was not so popular among Africans who preferred to work and at the same time learn without going to any institutions of learning.
According to an expert, some of the reasons why online learning was not totally embraced in this part of the continent is simply because there are no available locally curated content that teaches something related to African topics such as courses on bead making, tye and dye, gele tying et al and the unavailability of cheap internet service that will aid online learning.
However, as a result of technology penetration in the African market, the use of smartphones and affordable internet service has made it easier for people to enrol for an online course and learn at the comfort of their home or office.Moreso, it should be noted that the adoption of online learning was further made interesting with the advent of both paid and free learning platform.
Here, we decided to highlight both top free and paid online learning platform where users can learn for a limited or unlimited period of time.
These online learning sites, also known as MOOC offers learners free courses while others demand payment from users before they can have access to the paid courses.
There are other platforms that also facilitate learning by allowing different people who wish to teach others to create courses for users to learn without payment.
