The Virtual Institute of Technology (The VIT) develops and delivers e-learning solutions that enable people of all backgrounds to acquire modern skills so that they can play a meaningful role in a fast-changing world.
E-learning or online education as it is sometimes called, has become an increasingly important tool in minimising the negative impact of disruptions caused by pandemics such as Covid-19 on traditional teaching methods.
Governments, schools, institutions of higher learning and corporations are having to allocate more resources to fund e-learning as social distancing becomes the norm.
The VIT has developed the technology that accurately determines the effectiveness and social impact of such funding, regardless of the educational platforms adopted by different users.
With 4 700 registered users currently using its platform, the Virtual Institute of Technology (VIT) expects its user numbers to grow “exponentially” over the next 18 months. This is according to VIT project manager Phumzile Hlatshwayo, speaking at the launch of the edtech company before a hybrid audience.
