  49. 49. 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.

  51. 51. 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.

  53. 53. 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.
