Leveraging artificial intelligence to improve learning outcomes for students in the world's most resource-constrained communities.



Students have used Darsel's chatbots to solve maths questions

The problem

Students in low- and middle-income countries who attend schools with limited resources face significant challenges in achieving quality education. They often have the poorest educational outcomes and lack access to educational technology innovations due to device and internet constraints. For instance, device and internet constraints prevent 1 billion students from reliably accessing video-based solutions. This educational disparity perpetuates a cycle that deprives these students of opportunities to unlock their full potential.

The solution

Darsel has developed and deployed a mathematics learning platform, which allows students to practise and learn maths through low-bandwidth channels such as SMS, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. The platform uses AI-powered personalised learning algorithms to identify and address learning gaps, leveraging curriculum-aligned content, including 500k+ questions along with hints and explanations, which help students ‘learn while doing.’ The platform also uses gamification and motivational features to maximise student engagement.

The insight

Darsel's platform is effective not only because of its technology, content and partnerships but also because of its simplicity and accessibility, given it works on any device, requires minimal to no internet, and uses messaging channels that students and parents already use. So far, over 50,000 students have solved nearly 50 million maths questions on Darsel's learning chatbots which has greatly improved learning outcomes.

They started with two schools, then expanded to 10 and then 100 schools before launching nationally (2,000+ schools) in Jordan in early 2023. They are now working towards scaling their programs in Nigeria and India.
