Diedhiou A, Gilroy KE, Cox CM, Duncan L, Koumtingue D, Pacqué-Margolis S, Fort A, Settle D, Bailey R - Glob Health Sci Pract (2015)

Bottom Line: Most (90%) participants thought they learned the same or more compared with a conventional course.The mLearning system proved appropriate, feasible, and acceptable to trainees, and it was associated with sustained knowledge gains.Monitoring and evaluation of larger-scale implementation could provide evidence of system effectiveness at scale.

f02: Interactive Voice Response mLearning System Infrastructure

Mentions: Figure 2 shows the basic hardware and software infrastructure used in the IVR mLearning system. The system ran on an Ubuntu server and 2 GSM modems. We developed a set of custom scripts (“middleware”) to manage interactions between open source IVR software tools and learning solutions. FreeSWITCH—an open source telephony platform—handled the voice interactions via one modem and Gammu software interfaced with the other modem to administer the SMS texting. Moodle, the predominant open source eLearning system, managed the quiz interactions. We prioritized using open source technologies because of their low cost and ability for local adaptations.
