Frequently Asked Questions
Shupavu is our SMS product that is available in Kenya on Safaricom. You can view lessons, view the Top Ten students, search Wikipedia and chat with a live teacher. If you are a teacher you can also take a refresher course and receive tips on classroom management. Dial *291# to get started!
Mwalimoo is our web product. It is like Shupavu but you can edit your profile and see much richer content. You can use Mwalimoo on any device with an internet connection. You can also purchase Mwalimoo here or from any Textbook Centre in Nairobi.
Mwalimoo works on all operating systems: Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, and Linux.
