As more developing nations engage the technology innovation sphere, we can expect more products and services designed to address specified issues that affect those loving in similar conditions. The engineering innovation award was launched in 2014 and rewards innovators in sub-Saharan Africa.
Godwin Benson (Nigeria) designed Tuteria; a platform that links qualified tutors to students in their local area and preffered budget. Mr Benson surpassed 16 other participants to win the £25,000 ($32,000)s reward.
The app allows students to book lessons using an online payment system and Tutors are paid once the lessons have been confirmed.Tuteria takes up to 30% commission for each paid lesson and has a rating system to gauge user satisfaction and system efficiency.
As we see the education need and availability change with the waves of technology and global data access, platforms like Tuteria may become the new norm in self education and skills enhancement.
