And there's a whole lot more to come...
Fully Democratic Learning: On the Taco app, you don’t have to buy topics you’ve already mastered because we’ve unbundled all subjects into topics so that your preferences and choices can matter. This is how democratic education can get.
Optional Video Quality: Choose from three video qualities (720p, 480p, & 360p) based on your internet speed and data budget. Taco was built with inclusiveness in mind; so you’re not left out simply because you live in an area without 4G or because you have low income to cover data costs.
Offline Class Viewing: Not only can you choose video quality to conserve data usage, you can download classes for offline viewing anywhere – learning on the go – be it while travelling or in no-network area.
Freedom: Because no two learners are perfectly identical, Taco allows you to learn at your own pace and place & within your schedule.
Motivation: Get inspired to increase your focus and diligence by aiming for certificates of completion (available on some select combination of classes).
Detailed Analytics: Answers to quiz questions are automatically scored and results immediately returned so that you can have instant feedbacks on your progress as you learn on Taco. Furthermore, detailed analyses of your activities are available on your dashboard to give a holistic view of your learning journey.
Learning & Sharing: The in-app wallet system built into the Taco app allows learners to transfer funds from their wallets to friends for purchase of classes on the go. That way, you’re not just learning, you’re also sharing – the two most fulfilling things to do with life and time!
Yes. By downloading our TACO mobile application from play store, you can access lectures and other resources anywhere in the world.
TACO classes are based on approved curiculla and syllabi, but TACO is not an accredited school, hence TACO can't issue government approved credentials.
There isn’t any subscription charge on TACO. You just need to purchase individual classes of interest. You can view your purchased class for the period of one year.
We're aware of the bank charges and the inconvenience involved if learners have to pay online or by bank transfers or deposits each time a class is to be purchased, so we have included an in-app wallet into which learners can make lump sum deposits and thereafter use funds for future class purchases. For example Ndidi Haruna funds wallet with N1,000 and gradually purchases classes for N50 or N100.
TACO fully encourages sharing and has made it possible for you to transfer funds from your wallet to another user who may then use it to purchase classes.
