Akanne is an educational technology organisation that trains and promotes the use of technology in education. We provide EduTech services like ICT training, software or app development, device deployment, hardware infrastructure setups, internet access, audio or video editing and production, graphic animation, inforgraphics etc. We also explore different edtech activities and services with special interest in Africa. The continent in general has been challenged by poor education and under-development.
The organisation started as a blog site in 2014 where we taught basic computer usage. It was pulled down in the following year and was ran as health directory. This was in an attempt to help Nigerians get easy access to health care givers. The idea was again truncated due to poor access to vital information, lack of resources and appropriate funding. In late 2017, it transcended into a technology promotion organisation for Africa. In late 2018, it narrowed down as Educational Technology Organisation. Akanne also maintains a blog known as Akanne Blog where we teach EduTech applications and an online institution known as Akanne Academy, that host hundreds of online courses.
Akanne EduTech Organisation seeks to help in the development of Africa by promoting educational technologies within this African region by training teachers on how to adopt and apply educational technology in the classroom. Our products are up for global grabbing but we have physical presence in some West African countries like: Nigeria, Benin, Gambia, Ghana, Liberia. We hope to expand to other African regions like South-Africa, Egypt, Algeria, Angola, Morocco, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania and the world at large. Education has a role to play in economy, politics and general development of these areas.
