Low cost EdTech that helps you solve problems
Tracking results, let alone improving results in education in remote and low incomes areas is difficult. When buying new technology the cost of the device is just a fraction of the total costs: training, maintenance and connectivity cost money, too.
That's why Ustad Mobile's attendance and result tracking system is built so that it needs only one smartphone per school. Teachers who may or may not be smartphone users can just snap a picture of an attendance sheet, gradebook or exam paper and the data is automatically captured. That brings real time data with optional biometrics that can deliver the transparency stakeholders seek without excessive extra overhead costs.
Learning content can be delivered to teachers and students: without requiring Internet and without requiring a smartphone. We support the 3 billion Java enabled feature phones currently in use, too. You can use content made in the open source eXeLearning authoring tool or any other EPUB / TinCan authoring tool.
