In 2014, a group of students signed up to test the beta version of Slatecube. They learnt and acquired industry-relevant skills and were eventually adopted as interns in reputable ICT firms. After the course and experience with the platform, 100% of them have gone on to strike deals that’ll see them work for top companies upon graduation from the university. In addition, nearly 200 individuals actively use the Slatecube service to take free courses, acquire new knowledge, read new books, and serve virtual internships. Furthermore, everyone with valuable knowledge can share that knowledge on the platform as a course once they are approved. Courses can be paid for thus making it possible for individuals to make money off of the socially beneficial knowledge they share on the platform.
