mLearning Tibotec project presented at eLearning Africa in Dakar Senegal


Published on

These are the slides that will be presented (still a draft version, but almost finished) at the eLearning Africa conference in Dakar, Senegal.

The project uses mobile devices (N95 and iPhone) to send mobile courses to medical workers in the field (in and around Lima). We use wifi, photosharing, skype... just look at the options we choose.
