Purpose
  • Other purpose
Nafham is a free online K-12 crowdsourced educational platform linked to the Egyptian and Syrian educational curricula. It works as a supplement to a failing school system and it is also available for anyone (although the content is in Arabic), which means it has huge possibilities across the world, especially with the Syrian conflict forcing many people to leave their homes.It is globally available through 15-minute YouTube videos.The content relies on volunteer teachers, students and parents, but the videos are revised by a professional to ensure the quality of the videos. There is also more than one video for each subject, providing alternative approaches, as each person has a different learning style.Nafham provides 5 to 20 minutes crowd sourced videos which are revised by professionals. Videos are explaining concepts usually taken in class using different approaches, making it easier for students to understand them.These videos are categorized by grade, subject, term and academic schedule which make the curriculum easier for students to navigate through it and get the lessons they want in seconds.
