Using the custom-built app, students will be able to access a wide range of learning materials on the go. According to Head of Products and New Innovations at Bilyak Consulting, Oladayo Akinpelumi, the app caters to the entire educational ecosystem of Nigeria, having already received endorsements from Universal Basic Education, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, and Open University in the UK.

In addition, the app also provides assistance to teachers, allowing them to upload lectures and tests, which can be accessed remotely across the country. mAcademy appears to have received international attention, evident from the fact that its launch was attended by the Federal Ministry of Education, UNESCO, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, TEP Centre, British Council, and even members of the Nigerian military force.

The initiative is aimed at filling a big void in the country in terms of education. Data from UNICEF has revealed that over 10.5 million children in Nigeria are currently out of school. Digitisation, on the other hand, is spreading rapidly across the African continent, especially in Nigeria, and this initiative aims to capitalise on the latter to help with the former.
