With the introduction of the Competency-Based Curriculum(CBC), the Ministry of Education through KICD has acknowledged the significant impact of digital learning platforms in enhancing competency-based learning among students. Every KICD-complaint digital learning platform such as MwalimuPLUS is relevant

to the new Competency-Based Curriculum(CBC) owing to the variety of learning resources  and tools available for the promotion of competency-based learning and assessment.  Another benefit of MwalimuPLUS and other compliant platforms is the non-negotiable  quality assurance processes in place.

This is done in line with the CBC guidelines. As a  result of that, MwalimuPLUS and other KICD-compliant entities protect unsuspecting  students from misinformation and access to inadequately developed learning materials.

Furthermore, MwalimuPLUS as a KCID-compliant digital learning platform assures  consistency in educational standards to end users.

Due to the  consistency, students can confidently access such digital learning materials in classroom  settings, on the move, or at home. With such a robust KICD framework, students using such  platforms are exposed to reliable academic materials. Such platforms continue to have a  transformational and lasting impact on education by making it more effective and accessible  to students.  

Finally, KICD assures accountability and oversight to students using the approved digital  learning platforms. Every platform whose digital learning content has been approved by  KICD operates under the scrutiny of the approving body. As a result, service providers are  obliged to comply with the existing educational standards. KICD’s foolproof oversight  contributes to transparency and trust within the educational sphere. Consequently,  stakeholders advocate for the use of KICD-compliant platforms due to their dedication to  preserving the integrity of the laid-down educational guidelines.
