Nokia has been running a Mobile Learning for Mathematics project in South Africa since 2008, collaborating with the South African government, Nokia Siemens Networks, as well as operators and content providers. Nokia Mobile Mathematics (https://momaths.nokia.com) is a free, online Grade 10-12 Mathematics support service providing 9000+ CAPS-aligned questions.
Here is a video showing how learners appreciate this help
The programme started in 2008 with 300 learners and within a couple of years had grown to 50,000 learners. Nokia then opened the service to informal learning so that students could have 24/7 access to its materials. This programme has had major impact in interactive Maths learning. 53% of students are active users. The competence level of the users rose by 14%. 82% of the usage happens after school hours.
