MTN just announced that it is currently making access to online learning platforms free for university students in Africa so their education can remain seamless during the coronavirus pandemic. The telecom company recently partnered with the University of Zambia, Copperbelt University, and Mulungushi University to make life easier for students.
According to IT News Africa, the collaboration means that university students from the 3 learning institutions will pay nothing to access their university’s e-learning platform and they will only need an internet-enabled device and an active MTN SIM Card.
