With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, schools across major cities in the country have
closed down indefinitely, leaving millions of students without access to education. The
inaccessibility to academic activities for such a long time could be unhealthy to the
educational development of an individual.

Though the days are starting to feel the same, students are losing valuable time to the global
crisis. To tackle the learning gap created by the pandemic, FirstBank have launched an e-
learning initiative in collaboration with partners, Robert & John, IBM and Curious Learning, to
foster the continuous learning in its commitment to drive 1 million students in Nigeria
through elearning, from primary, secondary and selected tertiary levels, during and after the
COVID-19 pandemic.<img alt aria-hidden="true" class="i-amphtml-intrinsic-sizer" role="presentation" src="data:image/svg+xml;charset=utf-8,”>

The partnership with Robert & John, offers Roducate, an e-learning solution with
government-accredited curriculum, complete with lecture notes, assignments, tutorials,
exams, videos, for students from primary, secondary and selected tertiary school level. The
platform has eight modules and is available both online and offline (through preloaded
devices).

The partnership with Curious Learning, offers a program that provides two mobile
applications, designed to educate students in the early learning stage, aged 3-8 in a fun and
self-guided learning process. The apps are available in multiple languages including; Igbo,
Yoruba and Hausa and accessible on google playstore (Android users).<img alt aria-hidden="true" class="i-amphtml-intrinsic-sizer" role="presentation" src="data:image/svg+xml;charset=utf-8,”>

Through IBM, the partnership offers Digital-Nation Africa, an online youth-focused learning
program that enables innovation and skills development on emerging technologies through
focus areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Coding, Cloud, Internet of Things, Blockchain,
Data Science and Analytics, and Cybersecurity.
With you taking advantage of this, you can be rest assured that the pandemic has got
nothing on your education.

FirstBank, is at the forefront of ensuring every student in Nigeria, with no exception, can
continue learning right in the comfort of their homes.
