Angaza Elimu

Organisation Profile

Overview

Angaza Elimu are based in Kenya and have a deployed product that is serving over 170k students with more than 54k active daily users.

What type of products are you working on?

We develop formative assessment items through an interactive e-learning platform using Large Language Models (LLMs). We use Meta’s LLama and OpenAI’s GPT.

What has surprised you about using AI for education?

We have been most surprised about the scale of what AI can achieve in education. Our work shows that it can play a crucial role in automating the generation of accurate resources: assessments and lesson notes at large scale.

Where have you seen the biggest impact for teachers/ students?

Students have recorded an average improvement of 32% on their academic performance.

Teachers are saving about 15% of their time as AI can help reduce the burden of producing assessments and teaching & learning materials.

What are you hoping can be achieved through collaboration with the community?

We want the community to be a learning and sharing platform for the latest AI for education knowledge. This will go a long way to help us improve on the AI models we are working on.

How can a community help you?

The community can support us in contributing to the open models we have developed.

What are the biggest challenges you are currently facing?

A key challenge for us is “AI Hallucination”, where AI creates inaccurate outputs. This is mainly due to lack of localised content.

Using generative AI to produce teaching & learning materials.

Learning By Doing

We are providing small grants to support the development of AI products & components in LMICs. We know that innovation investment is high-risk. Our aim is that our community can benefit from the lessons learned in these pilots – what works and what doesn’t.

Learn more about our pilot projects here. We will be following each project and reporting on key learnings.
