Darisni, the region’s first smart-device platform that instantly connects students with qualified tutors, has expanded its in-app offerings to address the needs of students in the region, said Founder & CEO Noor Boodai at a discussion panel held as part of Egypt’s Ecommerce Summit on September 17. She said that the expanded offerings by Darisni, underline the importance of having an easy-to-access and constantly evolving educational platform to meet the aspirations of students today and to enable them to unlock their true potential.
The discussion featured leading Arab Educational Technology (EdTech) leaders, who highlighted the importance of EdTech and its role in ensuring that modern education evolves in tune with massive changes we see in the world today – led by information technology and internet connectivity.
Noor Boodai added: “The needs of students are changing and it is important that the education sector keeps pace with this change. With the internet revolutionising how we live, work and play, ensuring organic and continually evolving EdTech platforms are key to shaping the citizens of the future. Our goal is to provide user-friendly platforms and products that meets their expectations.”
Noor Boodai added: “At Darisni, we believe in the importance of the tech-driven education to make it relevant and value-added for students. We have set a clear benchmark in tech-driven education and created a well-established platform for students through Darisni. Our professional team works hard to ensure that we meet the needs of our users, and help achieve our main goal of making quality education more accessible to the people.”
Boodai observed that while EdTech is a game changer for education, it is not as fast-growing as others. “EdTech companies need support and investment in addition to allocation of skilled talents. Irrespective of a country’s economic performance, EdTech companies need to be nurtured because education is at the core of the society, and families value the importance of educating their kids.”
Boodai said that Darisni is trying to be a changemaker and helping address the challenges faced by the EdTech sector. “Many companies complain about the education system but do nothing to change it. We believe that a lot can be accomplished in the industry more so because the aspirations of students have changed too. They seek the spirit of social community that Facebook and Instagram have built. A virtual community that acts as a support system in exchanging information and motivate students to work harder is key – and that is role that Darisni plays today.”
Highlighting the success of Darisni, Boodai said that it has established itself as a stable platform with a growing number of users every month. “The stability and growth of Darisni makes it a good platform to invest in so that all stakeholder benefit from it.”
The Egypt Ecommerce Summit aimed at breaking the barriers preventing retailers from going online and leveraging the breakthroughs in e-commerce that is fast transforming the region’s retail landscape.
Darisni can be downloaded for free on iPhone, iPad, and Android smart devices. School and university students can use the multi-subject platform to connect with subject specialists, who will then assist them with the learning and understanding required to answer their questions. Darisni offers monthly complimentary hours to enhance the learning process and encourages students to discover the new technology.
