Nigerian ed-tech startup Stranerd announces peer-to-peer learning platform.

Stranerd, a Nigerian startup, has launched a peer-to-peer learning platform where students can ask and answer homework-related questions, with the service designed to give the brightest students opportunities to help others who may be less skilled in specific subjects.

Stranerd began as an Instagram page in 2018, but only recently became a standalone digital product. The startup employs a gamification model to promote learning by rewarding students with coins and elevating them to higher ranks based on how much they interact with the site, either by asking or answering questions.

“Our goal is to create the largest student community where collaboration and innovation thrive in order to create opportunities for students to function at the highest level possible and add the most value to the student community.” We intend to accomplish this by encouraging peer-to-peer learning and providing students with the tools they need to collaborate and solve problems,” said Jeremiah Godwin, co-founder of Stranerd with Timmy Salami.

As the page grew and referrals poured in, running the Instagram page, which posted educational content and offered academic assistance to students from all over the world, demonstrated the value of such a platform.

“However, there was a missing link – Nigerians, who would benefit the most from this service, could not access it, primarily because the fee was in dollars,” Salami explained. “This gave birth to the idea of developing a workable plan that would allow Nigerian and other African students to access this service.”

Stranerd was thus born this year, with a strong early take-up.

“Based on our social media experience, we’ve discovered that students can actually help other students, and this is far more expedient and conducive.” This is why we believe that launching this website is a step in the right direction,” Godwin said.

Stranerd, which is self-funded and supported by revenue, makes money by offering tutorial services and homework assistance to students via social media direct messaging.
