Ashtar is Egypt’s answer to Google Classroom, with free services available during the pandemic.
In light of the continued shutdown of schools, students are steadfast on their virtual education journeys. As Google Classroom continues to grow every day, there is a new, more local, saviour in sight for Egyptian students who need that little extra push. Ashtar Education Technology has now debuted its mobile application for national students, with the entirety of the Egyptian curriculum for primary, preparatory and secondary students available in Arabic, English, and French.
Ashtar app’s entire contents will be accessible completely free of charge. This offer is aimed at secondary school seniors in particular who still need to pass their end-of-year exams, even though they haven't been able to go to school or access private lessons.
Ashtar uses three core methods to enable students: learning, training and playing. This system ensures that information is approached through different methods of absorption and then solidified through practical, hands-on experiences. The app offers feedback reports, practice tests and quizzes, lesson reviews, and a bank of over 150,000 questions and answers. Students will accumulate points over time and be able to compete with other students in the same virtual classroom, allowing them to become engaged in more ways than they could have done with just their korasa and sandwichat 7alawa bl meraba. Can we get in on this too?
