Econet’s EcoSchool to launch online learning partnership with ACCA


Local mobile operator Econet Wireless and global professional accounting body ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) are set to unveil a partnership today that will introduce accounting students to the use of EcoSchool, the operator’s digital education platform for learning.


Following a pilot in early 2014 EcoSchool was launched later in the same year as a tool for online resources used by tertiary level students. It offers access to zero-rated content and resources for a gamut of disciplines. It has expanded its offering beyond tertairy education with new service lines like the EcoSchool Academy.

Though extensive details on the Econet -ACCA partnership are yet to be shared, the information that has been provided so far indicates that the two entities will be distributing content for a service known as ACCA-X.


This is an online learning programme for ACCA students and anyone else interested in picking up skills in business and accounting. It was launched last year as a collaborative effort between ACCA, massive open online courses (MOOCs) platform edX, as well as Epigeum, a online professional courses platform.

ACCA-X courses are available for free with a premium option available for syudents who want to register for ACCA certifications.

For both ACCA and Econet this partnership is likely focused on expanding their respective footprints. Econet will have a chance to extend the use of its platform to a subset of professionals keen on the latest learning material while ACCA will benefit from Econet’s reach in the digital learning space.

  1. Is there any online Shona learning program for us Murungus? Any enterprising young Zimbabwean willing to tackle this? I for one would be prepared to PAY for such a program or Android App.

    1. Try the Zivo app its an African language app. You can use it to learn African languages for free. The app is Free. Still has a few bugs but we are working on fixing them. You can also try the Chii app (Its Shona app) .

    2. While not a language learning site, provides a two-way dictionary as well as a machine translation service between English and Shona. These might be handy for learning words, but will be limited in teaching you correct grammar.
