Nuru Net is a chatbot aimed at providing quick and easy access to educational resources for students in Sub Sharan Arica and Africa as a whole. The chatbot is accessible through WhatsApp and utilizes natural language processing to answer questions, provide explanations, and offer summaries of educational materials. With a focus on topics such as math, science, and English, Nuru Net aims to improve access to quality education and support the learning process for students in Uganda, especially those who may not have access to traditional educational resources. The chatbot also aims to address the issue of teacher shortages by providing an additional resource for students to turn to for academic support.
