It is also preloaded with Parhai Buddy (Pakistan’s first AI-powered learning coach), Exam Prep Master (Learn Smart Pakistan), 1-on-1 competitions, and teacher-led training.

To increase mobile adoption, CreditPer is offering easy instalment plans to meet unique individual needs. To increase internet adoption in the region, we have also partnered with Jazz Telecom to come up with an Edu-data sim containing a subsidized internet package at PKR. 150 per month.

The project has been recognized, and nominated for the Global Mobile Awards, by the GSMA as a best mobile innovation for the emerging markets and is considered an outstanding contribution to the UN SDGs.

CEO, Knowledge Platform Mahboob Mahmood said,

“We are honoured to be the change makers in the ed-tech industry. Affordable devices and internet access are key barriers to online education.”

With the launch of this educational tablet, we have moved a step closer to our goal of bridging the digital divide. Through this deal with CreditPer, the device is available on installments to people with low-income streams, providing them access to personalized learning, digital content, games, assessments, and data. Over the years, the way education is practiced has evolved rapidly and it is good to see tech companies joining hands to transform education.”
