Description of the project

iLearn is a platform with free online courses for everyone who seeks preparation for the External Independent Testing (EIT) or just wants to learn. We want all children in Ukraine to have the opportunity to enter those institutions of higher learning that they dream of, regardless of their place of residence, location of the institution, or their social status. We are convinced that access to education must be equal for everybody.

It all began with our cooperation with a boarding school in the Chernihiv Oblast where we provided Skype lessons for children and their math teacher to prepare them for the EIT. The half-year results of intense tuition impressed us: the children became budget-funded students of the KNEU. It was then that we decided to make this program all-Ukrainian and available for every child.

We provide every student with an access to our online platform iLearn that contains online courses and webinars on main subjects:

  • Ukrainian language and literature
  • English
  • Math
  • History of Ukraine
  • Biology
  • Professional orientation

In partnership with EdEra we create online courses and use innovative approach to provide the highest quality of materials. Among the techniques we use are: micro-learning, mnemonics (associations for better memorizing of materials) and gamification.

Gamification is the key trend in modern world education. Osvitoria actively supports this trend and implements in into the project iLearn. While registering on our platform, each student chooses a hero for further work. Also, students receive virtual coins for watching online lectures, webinars and submitting tests. These coins allow students upgrade  their hero.

More than 10,000 students from all over the country have already benefited from our program, including those who live in the uncontrolled areas of Ukraine but want to enter Ukrainian institutions of higher learning. This project gives children a chance to attain more.

Solves global goals

Quality education

Hundreds of graduates consider the platform useful and helpful for preparation to the finals. These students are from different parts of Ukraine, particularly form orphanages and country schools. In such a way, by developing the project we reduce the rates of inequality in access to quality education.

Reduced inequalities

The project solves the problem of inequality in access to quality education. Indeed, when compiling the External Independent Assessment, all students are equal, but not during the preparation. The research of the analytical center CEDOS has shown the dependence of the results of OER on the material, social status of students.Our project solves the problem of inequality of access to high quality education. During the final exams all students are equal, while during the preparation to these exams they are not. The CEDOS research analytics show correlation between social and financial status of the child to his results on finals.
