Want to learn more about Safaricom Education Bundle? In this post I am going to show you how you can get free 100MB Elimu Bundle for learning on Viusasa, Longhorn E-learning and Shupavu Web.
With this bundle, you have 100 MB to use as you please on any of the three platforms I have mentioned. Now that children are home you can quickly get them to enjoy the resources available online on the three platforms.
100MB may not seem much at all. But think about it this way: How many people have Safaricom lines in your house? You and your spouse? That is 200MB right there. If your children have older siblings with Safaricom lines, that is an extra 100MB per person (using Safaricom as their mobile phone service provider) in your house.
Your children can use the data on one device (on a tablet or laptop for example). All you have to do is use the Mobile Hotspot / Wi-Fi feature on your smartphone to share the data with them. If it is not possible, you can just hand them your smartphone for a few minutes – wajibambe waki-learn.
