We believe that quality education should be accessible to ALL.
At dorKk, we believe that with a quality education, future generations can empower themselves to change the world.
Children’s thirst for knowledge should not be limited by their financial, geographical, or social circumstances.
That’s why the team behind dorKk came together to build an affordable, accessible space where learners can access an entire pre-recorded curriculum of extra lessons anytime, anywhere.
dorKk brings dedicated, experienced, and knowledgeable teachers to all. For the price of a Netflix subscription.
The dorKkiest idea ever
How we got started
First conceived by our head dorKk, Johann Verhoef almost ten years ago, the idea kept percolating until he teamed up with Africa Advisors who helped turn the concept into a reality. Many hours of brainstorming and problem-solving later, and the team of passionate educators and entrepreneurs finally launched dorKk in 2022.
We believe that financial circumstances should not be a barrier to a child's education, and that experienced, knowledgeable teachers should be at the fingertips of every single child, parent, or teacher for the price of a Netflix subscription.
Light bulb moment!
“We realised that we all had a passion for the same thing, and at its core, this passion was to make quality education available to anyone and everyone who had a desire to learn.”
- Team dorKk
We’re taking ownership of the word ‘dorKk’, and we’re redefining it.
In the past, it was used to describe someone who was bookish, a little ‘nerdy’ and maybe even socially awkward.
But today, dorKks are taking over the world. We’re the tech-savvy developers behind your favourite apps. We’re the creatives who turn epic novels into award-winning series like ‘Game of Thrones’. We’re the dreamers who build solar-powered cars, and the architects who design the schools of the future.
dorKks love a challenge. We love to use our skills and talents to make the world more technological, more entertaining, and more beautiful place.
We’re proud to be dorKks
The capital K in our name emphasises the fact that every dorKk is unique.
Inside every one of us is an individual just waiting for the opportunity to ‘dorKk out’. To find that thing that makes us tick. Our passion, our purpose. And what better way to start this journey of exploration than with a solid foundation of knowledge?
A quality education gives us the head-start we need to explore further education, and to excel in our future careers.
To offer all learners a premium experience for supplementary life-long learning through our educational services and solutions.
We want to make world class school education accessible to all. We believe that if all children receive a quality education, they will be able to create endless opportunities for themselves in the future.
The goal of dorKk is to have every grade, subject, and lesson from every curriculum available in every language in all countries.
What dorKk offers
We love learning, and we believe that by offering an online learning platform like dorKk, we can empower future generations to help create a better future for all.
Here’s what we offer:
On-demand access to pre-recorded extra lessons
Learners can access high quality content anywhere, anytime and on any device. All under one subscription from the comfort of their home.
At dorKk, we take great care to ensure that all of our lessons are fully aligned with the relevant curriculum. This means that learners can be confident that they are studying the material that they need in order to succeed in their academic pursuits.
Pre-recorded video tutoring
All content strictly follows the curriculum with added tips and tricks to help you understand the work better. The pre-recorded videos by highly skilled teachers can be watched and re-watched as many times as the learner needs.
Recommended watching across subject & grade
Learning doesn’t happen in isolation. Each video also has recommended videos to watch from a previous grade or subject to better explain the current lesson or topic.
We’ve designed the platform to be accessible to all. It can be easily navigated by all learners from grade 1 to grade 12. It also features a blog which highlights helpful hints on studying, time-management, and career choice.
We currently cater for Grades 1 to 12 with a weekly update of new videos for each grade and subject. Learners can also access all the information from all the grades if they want to revise a concept, or rewatch a previous lesson.
A wide range of subjects (which keep growing)
dorKk is constantly growing. Every week, new lessons are added to the platform, so learners will never run out of material to revise. Every Friday, our teachers upload between 40 and 250 pre-recorded lessons.
