Therefore, this might be evidence of how educational study culture in being transformed into modern day system.
The introduction of computer donation in both primary and secondary might be the primary evidence of how education is being transformed from the ancient culture of study into modern day educational system hence providing the opportunity for internet use characterized by,eLearning platforms such as Ruzivo, Elearning Solutions, eLearning Technologies, eLearning Zimbabwe just to mention but a few. The ancient culture of study was backed by the establishment of libraries at school, colleges and universities while pregnant with large volumes of textbooks which might be out of syllabus. Introduction of computer studies in different levels in the education system is being viewed as an opportunity among different individual to develop their skills in both software and hardware accessories, hence adopting the culture of computer study system to sustain livelihoods strategies and develop other skills that might lead to easy access to quality educational information relevant to the specific study area. Therefore, educational exodus might be viewed as how the culture of study is being transformed in the education system with modern flavor.
The educational exodus also relates how the culture of study is being transformed since the teachers for
computers are obliged to be computer literary because most of the pupils prefer modern accessories since they need to catch up with modern technological flavor.

For instance in Region 5, the low-veld schools in the Mwenezi district and Chiredzi characterized by the poor educational culture flavor which might be labeled as primitive and passive in the educational attainment, their education status is disadvantaged due to their remoteness, hence the ministry of primary and secondary mighty intervene in form of fund seeking or donor searching but the political and economic situation might be the drawback.
The educational exodus mighty also relates how individuals can transform their education and social life status in developing their skills in forms of computer literacy especially in tertiary industry characterized by computer maintenance, development of eLearning platforms, networking and web designing just to mention but a few.

Therefore most of the individuals develop their skills so as to better their income through developing a comprehensive set up with computer skill orientation. For instance computer maintenance is a classical example which one mighty survives through repairing, fixing the computer hardware, likewise software development, learning platforms gives other individuals opportunity to improve their income while working in conjunction with the ministry of both primary and secondary education, hence promoting educational exodus.
