There are many places without reliable Internet.  We spend a lot of time in them. There are even more places where Internet access is available but it’s expensive and not fast enough to use multimedia. We find ourselves in these places frequently, too. Sometimes learners have nice new smartphones, but generally they don’t. This is where we come in – we make it easy to deliver interactive learning content offline to as many devices as possible.

1. Easy content authoring / import

Making new content is easy using eXeLearning or any other xAPI / EPUB authoring tool of your choice.  You can simply point and click to create the content that you need in any language you want to use.  You can add text, images, audio, video, quizzes and mini games to make engaging experiences for learners.

2. Learning content runs offline on almost any device

Progress is logged and reports to a Learner Record Store (LRS) as soon as a connection is available automatically using tiny amounts of data.  Unlike other platforms Ustad Mobile supports feature phones that are common in low income areas.  The Android app is designed with performance in mind:it performs on low end models and works even on older versions of Android (from 4.0).

3. Progress and usage statistics in real time
