Overcoming Obstacles to Access in South Africa
Concurrent Session 6
This presentation addresses how North West University and Mirum are making Short Courses accessible to previously under-served South Africans via mobile.
Short courses are the primary means for providing education to South African who are not able to go from high school to college, as well as providing continuing education opportunities. However, because of issues related to access many learners have not been able to avail themselves of the opportunity to engage in these courses. This presentation will demonstrate how North West University and Mirum solved this problem through the delivery of dynamic, on-demand, mobile learning with full online, offline capabilities.
