African mobile penetra7on hits 80% (and is growing faster than anywhere else)
The smart phone could provide the answer to educa(ng those in remote areas, as tested by the University of Pretoria. Research carried out by the university indicated that 96% of the distance educa7on students had access to mobile phones, while only 1% had access to the internet at home.
mLearning vs. eLearning Mobile learning on Smart Phones diﬀers from e-‐learning on computers in that ac(vi(es are not set in one place and can be conducted at any (me and at any place.
mLearning Africa There are barriers to mobile learning in Africa, such as illiteracy levels, access issues (remote areas and price factors) and a gender gap (more men have mobile phones than women). However, thanks to the availability of solar power and mobiles running on much less power than computers, educa(on through mobile phones is becoming a great possibility to help those formerly excluded from educa(onal opportuni(es. If Smart Phone technology is developed in a robust, low cost manner, more and more Africans will con(nue to take advantage of this informa(on technology and new and exci(ng learning styles available to them.
Windows Smart Phones • Windows Phone already has a strong presence in Africa with devices from HTC, Samsung, and Nokia. In fact, another part of this broad 4Afrika ini(a(ve is a joint Nokia and Microsou customer training program in Kenya and Nigeria to help accelerate adop(on of Nokia Lumia 510 and 620 phones. • More than 90% of phones sold today in those markets are feature phones, so Microsou and Nokia are teaming up to provide free in-‐store training for customers to help them get the most from their new Lumias and manage their new data plans.
YouTube Videos • YouTube has announced that it will launch a new feature on its mobile apps enabling viewers to watch videos even when they are oﬄine. The new update will be available in November. • The feature will let viewers add videos to their devices to store and watch for a short period of (me when they are not connected to the Internet, “so your fans’ ability to enjoy your videos no longer has to be interrupted by something as commonplace as a morning commute,” according to YouTube’s Creator & Partners blog.
