The Tunisian startup scene is growing super fast. From AI to machine learning, the Tunisian startups are using the latest technologies to innovate and build interesting new solutions, solving issues in different fields.
The Concept of EdTech
Tunisia is known to have a pretty decent education system, yet the system still has its weaknesses, especially when it comes to preparing students for life outside of school and honing the essential skills that they need to succeed in the increasingly digitized modern workplace. This is something that the EdTech sector is hoping to solve.
The concept of EdTech has so many advantages as when it comes to making the learning process interesting, accessible and much more.
For instance, taking the Covid19 circumstances that we are running into since beginning of 2020, EdTech does facilitate learning in emergencies and displaced settings. And this is definitely, one major advantage that the concept of EdTech addresses.
GOMYCODE: A Leading Tunisian EdTech Startup
GOMYCODE founded back in 2017, aiming to fill the gap between the traditional training/education and nowadays job market. The startup is created by the two brothers Yahya et Amine Bouhlel.
Since its launch, GOMYCODE has been working to be a pan-African educational EdTech solution, one that brings together the best tech talents in the region, provides training on new technologies and connects talents around the world.
“During GOMYCODE’s first 3 years, the startup trained more than 5000 students and established partnerships with more than 100 organizations, universities and non-governmental organizations”, the two co-founders confirmed.
GOMYCODE: How Does this Tunisian Startup Work?
The Tunisian startup scene is growing super fast. From AI to machine learning, the Tunisian startups are using the latest technologies to create interesting new solutions, solving issues in different fields.
However, when it comes to EdTech, the technology here is sort of a means to an end. Despite of the heavy use of technology, online education as a service actually places the human element at its main core.
In EdTech, learning is all about the user experience. Unlike traditional education, which has been known to concentrate on facts presented in a purely informative manner, educational technology redefines the learning process, making it way more engaging and interesting. This is how GOMYCODE is actually working, implementing the EdTech.
