Kibabii Virtual School

Even as uncertainty continues to shroud the efficacy of virtual learning that the Ministry of Education has been advocating for, Liquid telecom has connected Kibabii virtual school in Bungoma County to enhance remote learning during these times that students are having to contend with a longer holiday.

Since 15th March when schools were closed as part of the measure to mitigate the spread of the virus, about 13 million students in public and private primary education have no option, but to learn from home.  

According to Job Wafula Nukhwana, founder of Kibabii Online School, virtual schools with fast internet and tools will help ensure that students remain connected and continue learning, especially important as students prepare for the upcoming Kenya national exams.

The school currently offers five lessons per class for the secondary school children and uses qualified and registered teachers to facilitate the sessions. The school was struggling with variable quality 3G mobile broadband which was hampering the overall delivery of remote learning. Despite its rural location, Liquid Telecom gave the school a new lease of life connecting the school to its expansive and high-speed East Africa Backbone network that connects Uganda to Kenya through Malaba.

Many schools in Kenya are trying their best to maintain the curriculum via remote learning. However, due to the lack of reliable connectivity, a deficit in digital skills and the high cost of mobile data many students rely on radio and TV for their education with no interaction or feedback from the school teachers.

Ben Roberts, Group Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at Liquid Telecom said, “We got to know about Kibabii virtual school from a story I saw on television. Seeing Job Wafula Nukhwana share how he is enabling virtual learning despite slow and expensive data was inspiring. Liquid Telecom has an expansive fibre network across the country and connected Kibabii to a fibre link that was very close by. I am excited to note that the school can host more classes, with better speeds, and help more students who are adapting to learning from home at this time.”

“We are pushing up our efforts to get more schools connected across the country so that learning continues uninterrupted despite the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition to enhanced connectivity, Liquid Virtual Education provides students and teachers at Kibabii School with full access on Microsoft Teams and Office 365 Education helping to ensure continued collaboration and learning,” he added.
