"eLearning is the answer to many challenges facing education in the country. A few years down the line when eLearning adoption is on a mass scale, you will find that quality education people are hungry for will be a thing of the past. Because what eLeanring enables is the use of technology to provide quality education to masses at an affordable cost, which otherwise is a contradiction in terms."
