[Nigeria] Edtech startup uLesson secures license to launch online university
Nigerian ed-tech, uLesson, has secured an online university license for Miva University, its new platform for tertiary education.
Founded in 2019 by serial entrepreneur Sim Shagaya, uLesson offers live online classes with expert tutors, video lessons, and personalized live homework help for primary and secondary school learners online and via its app.
Announcing this through his Twitter handle, Sim said that it was with a great sense of responsibility and excitement that Miva University, which is part of uLesson, has been granted an online university license.
He added, “The Federal Executive Council, acting on the recommendation of the National Universities Commission, granted Miva an Open Distance eLearning License that permits us to bring everything we have learned in K12 to the tertiary segment. We have dreamed of this day for 4 years – since the very founding of uLesson.”
