f03: Timing of Interactive Voice Response Calls Throughout Duration of the mLearning Training Course, Senegal 2013 (N = 619 Calls)

Mentions: The most common time of day for calls was in the late afternoon and evenings (median time, 5:16 pm) (Figure 3). Although all but 4 participants initially requested not to be contacted by the system after 8:00 pm, approximately one-third of the IVR calls were initiated by participants (through SMS text) after 8:00 pm. The majority of IVR calls were prompted and received outside normal working hours.
