About Us

What We Do

We provide teachers with the essential tools to teach and to manage their classrooms, through a complete solution. We have perfected the building of e-learning environments from strategy development, implementation plan, and technology roadmap and project management. We believe that building effective e-Learning environments means implementing a robust e-learning program that includes some or all of the following solution elements and supporting systems: Connectivity, Hardware, Learner Management Platform and Consulting.

Message from the CEO

E-Learning is becoming a topical debate
within the Basic Education landscape in
South Africa. The debate centres around
e-learning as a technological system based
approach to teaching and learning while
the other debate is around e-learning
replacing traditional teacher-based
classroom practice. Both these debates
have significant managerial implications
where leadership, administration,
pedagogy and curriculum are concerned.

It is for this reason we have organized Xcellate in a structure that provides a complete solution for educators and learners. It is our mission to help students discover and develop their unique greatness but most importantly we empower teachers to deliver next generation lessons and improve pedagogy
