Coordinating the efforts of the agencies that are working on the Education Sector Response to COVID-19 is important. Read here about the EDVISION initiative of NASCEE.
The Edvision Initiative Edvision is a digital platform, developed by Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), that aims to display the education landscape, facilitate connections, and promote transparency and collaboration. NASCEE has been working with RMB over the last 18 months in establishing this online landscaping and collaboration platform for the education community, namely Edvision, which was due for launch in mid-2020.
Who is NASCEE?
The National Association of Change Entities in Education (NASCEE) is a voluntary member-based organisation formally established in May 2019. NPOs are eligible to become members of NASCEE. The main object of the Association is to build a high-quality equitable education system for all South Africans through forging a strong collaboration between education non-profit organisations (increasingly also referred to as social change entities) and becoming a strategic partner with its members in achieving their objects.
Then COVID-19 happened...
The possibility of using the Edvision platform, in its existing format, for the collection and display of data pertaining to COVID-19 activities of NPOs and Funders was fast-tracked to allow for an earlier minimum viable product (MVP3) to be launched as a special instance of Edvision.
How can you get access to Edvision?
The early instance (MVP3) of Edvision is available to all NPOs and funders at . Contact Lauren Pearce, [email protected] or Kopano Seopela, [email protected] for more information. Call to Action! Tell your clients, colleagues and partners about Edvision - It is a great resource to help with coordination of the sector response to COVID-19
On the Agenda
Can SAMEA members assist in the review and analysis of data that will be collated through the platform? Let us discuss at the next EduCOVID tig meeting to be scheduled in June 2020.
