Mwabu e-Learning Content

In South Africa, we have launched a new CAPS-aligned product for primary schools. Educators can access teacher tips and training resources, as well as class management tools and reporting dashboards. Learners have fun, interactive material to engage them.

Our content will cover the primary school curriculum for Grades 1 – 7 in Mathematics, English and Natural Sciences & Technology. The content moves away from the classic rote learning or 'chalk-and-talk' approach and instead motivates pupils to enquire, explore and problem-solve.

Our content is structured in units which cover every learning objective of the curriculum. Each unit is structured in sections:


  1. Learning Objective
  2. Introduction - an opportunity to review previous learning using engaging questioning techniques and to ensure understanding of the lesson objective
  3. Explanation - the method or approach to use 
  4. Core Activity - e.g. group work, pair work, multiple choice exercises
  5. More Activities - differentiated by Reinforcement, Mainstream, and Extension activities
  6.  Plenary - verifying that learners have achieved the objective
  7.  Summary


We are also developing curriculum-aligned assessments to track performance and identify intervention areas for each learner.
