[EdTech Tool] Extramarks
Based in Gauteng, Extramarks has created an educational app aimed at assisting learners, parents, and teachers. The Extramarks Total Learning app has helped learners from grades six to grade 12 by them giving them easy access to their school curriculum in the safety of their own home. Parents and teachers are also able to use the app to track the learner’s progress.
The app can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Learners will be able to resources to learn Maths, Science, or English.
Extramarks uses a three-part approach to help learners and students in their studies. The first part includes helping the learner understand the concept through entertaining visuals such as videos.
The second step involves the learner putting into practice what they have learned. Finally, their knowledge is put to the test with various quizzes. The app is also able to help learners improve by providing a detailed and personalised report for them.
