Abstract [en]

We developed low-cost, effective ICT to improve distance education in Bangladesh, using video and SMS to implement innovative pedagogy and to create a large-scale interactive learning environment for students, hitherto not existing. We develop sustainable strategies for ICT use in education including curriculum development, teacher education for interactive learning, and a new business model. Being the first of its kind world-wide, the project will serve as a role model for how to arrange low-cost distance tuition requiring only minimal ICT infrastructure, an example providing valuable experiences transferable to other developing countries. The project addresses technical factors (development of interactive technology) as well as social ones (introducing and sustaining interactivity in education) and the business model for distance tuition (engaging local learning centres, telecommunication management).
