“Nafnam”, a website specialised in online education services, has introduced a new utility for users, namely, direct communication between teachers and students outside educational videos, thereby creating greater opportunities for teachers to benefit from educational video platforms.
According to Mostafa Farahat, executive director of the site, all teachers are accepted on the platform according to specific requirements, ensuring the quality of the educational material provided to students, noting that the service price is determined by agreement between students and teachers.
The new services to be provided by the platform are training courses on developing skills for youth to increase their practical capabilities through language courses and personal aptitude development, he pointed out. The service aims to become an integrated platform for students and graduates.
Farahat said that they will also launch a photography training course in cooperation with Canon, in addition to training courses for young entrepreneurs in Assiut, in coordination with the Innovation Cluster in the Assiut Technological Park led by the Greek Campus.
Expanding these types of training courses will help them increase communication between young graduates and entrepreneurs, and reach the largest number of beneficiaries from the platform, he explained.
Farahat pointed out the importance of relying on modern technology in the educational process for students, and that the platform has the curricula of the Ministry of Education throughout all grades to enable students to reach their desired topics from anywhere at anytime via mobile phones and computers.
He also called for increased dependence and focus on providing interactive remote services, which serve Egyptians through the internet as one of the main instruments for comprehensive development and improving the educational process performance level, which is an integral part of community development systems.
With the remarkable increase in the number of internet users in Egypt and the Arab region, they are fully aware that the private sector and the Egyptian government should pay more attention to the value of digital abundance and the development of public services affecting the education sector he added, elaborating, “the world is relying more on adapting the internet to serve our goals and to provide more added value services to students and teachers.”
Nafham recently launched services for the revision of the curriculum through educational videos which help students to understand and also keep up with the new booklet’s model. It also involves students in explaining and simplifying lessons, in order to develop their understanding of the material and spread the information better among colleagues.
Website aims to reach 1 million users per month by the end of this year, up from a current 800,000 at present time.
