Discipleship / Seminary Training on a Mobile Phone


Are you aware of the successful launch in March of cellphone-based distance learning in Kenya, the mLearning Project of our Global Technology office?  A friend explained to me some of the challenges they faced.

  • A phone was available just months before the launch that is affordable for Africans ( about $100).  Almost none of the students had seen or used a touch screen phone prior to starting this class, but almost all students learned to use them within a couple hours.
  • Larger capacity memory cards were ordered to handle the file sizes for the video lectures (multiple GBs).
  • A SMS-based student messaging system was custom-developed for this project.
