eLearning Platform Assistance
One of our other projects is centered around building our Online Learning Platform (we actually have the functionality complete and are just customizing the look and feel and security model).
This platform will allow us to build out a black history curriculum around different periods and events
(The Middle Passage, American Revolution, French American War, Civil War, Emancipation, Underground Railroad, Civil Rights Movement, The Caribbean Islands (multi tracks), Barack Obama, Black Lives Matter, etc).
Once the platform is up we will build a few sample courses, but our hope is to partner with Schools and Colleges to help evolve our curriculum and even leverage ideas and content that they would want to make available.
BlackFacts.com is about education and inspiration and having structured online courses is something we believe there is a growing demand for.
We also have toolsets for building simple Quizzes, Tests, Games bases on historical figures and events – and we hope to recruit our educational and university partners into assisting in building these out.
More about the Wakanda Technology Initiative:
The Wakanda Technology Initiative
is a concept of ours that we are going to be rolling out in the coming months. The reasoning behind it is as follows:
All too often people of Color are getting left behind in the Technology Revolution – just like they did with the Industrial Revolution
However, in this Revolution, you do not need capital, contacts or to get past an old boy network to participate and potentially rise to the top.
People of Color tend to be consumers of Technology but not Creators, Producers and Owners of technology.
Most minority Entrepreneurs, associations, and businesses never really LEVERAGE technology as part of their business process – at best they have a brochure website (with no business workflow), at worst they have little or no online presence.
Usually, minority businesses and associations cannot see the cost justification for spending the 10s of thousands of dollars to better leverage technology – so they always end up putting such investments on the back burner.
Yet minority Entrepreneurs are growing at a faster rate than other cultural entrepreneurs.
In addition, minorities do not necessarily BUY from one another – keeping the money within the culture.
We have a platform built by OUR people and targeting our People and at a price point that makes sense for even the smallest business.
While many orgnizations and individuals are "interested in" or "talking about" greater participation of people of color in technology, we have "been there, done that" for over 20 years, and are simply among the best in the industry - of ANY ethnicity. We build and work with world-class technology all day / every day. THIS IS WHAT WE DO.
It is CALLED the
Wakanda™ Technology initiative
because the way that Wakandans, in the movie The Black Panther, separated themselves from the world was with superior technology. Our goal at blackfacts.com is to uplift ALL of our people by making SUPERIOR technology available to the masses – but at a price point that they can afford.
