WorksheetCloud, a Cape Town-based edtech company, has made history by providing free, live-streamed online school lessons to over 40,000 South African learners in Grade 3 to 7 in just two days after launching.
WorksheetCloud, founded by father-and-son team Dereck and Adrian Marnewick, originally developed an award-winning exam study app that helps learners revise for school tests and exams.
“Twelve days ago we began thinking about ways in which to help the country during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dereck Marnewick, Chief Financial Officer. “Social media was buzzing with parents pulling their hair out trying to homeschool their children. We have access to award-winning technology and highly experienced teachers, so we launched WorksheetCloud Live Lessons.”
WorksheetCloud is an edtech company founded in 2014. The company is bootstrapped (self-funded) and owned by the Marnewick family. WorksheetCloud.com is a premium exam study app that helps learners prepare for tests and exams from Grades 1 to 12. WorksheetCloud Live Lessons is a project developed by WorksheetCloud and was launched on 2 April 2020.
