Over the last few months, Digital Campus has been working with Instrat Global Health Solutions, Medical Aid Films and mPowering Frontline Health Workers to develop a video training program for frontline health workers in Ondo State, Nigeria.

The project launch event took place on 22 April 2016 attended by Honorable Commissioner of Health Ondo State Dr Dayo Adeyanju, the Permanent Secretary of the Ondo State Ministry of Health, the Executive Secretary and Directors Ondo State Primary Health Care Board and representatives of the 18 PHC facilities who will be taking the training.

The training package consists of a series of the Medical Aid Films videos that have been translated into the local language, Yoruba, with a set of quizzes to test the users understanding of the videos. The package is all being run through OppiaMobile running on tablets held at the primary health care facilities. Digital Campus’s role in this program was mainly providing training to the local Instrat team for the content development and adaptation. We’re now extending this training to cover more of the technical aspects of supporting an OppiaMobile implementation.

New version of OppiaMobile app released

We’ve just published an updated version of the OppiaMobile app on the Google Play store.

Most of the updates are minor bug fixes and performance improvements, though we have now added the option for user to progress through courses in a linear way – so only allowed to move on to the next activity after completing the previous. This can be set up for the course when it is exported from Moodle, and there is still the option to allow the user to complete activities in any order they feel.

For full details of the updates, please see the release notes.

Congratulations to our colleague, Selamawit Mengesha Bilal, who has just completed her PhD thesis entitled “The father’s role in child nutrition in Ethiopia”, as a scholar of the joint PhD program between Maastricht and Alcalá Universities. Digital Campus has been collaborating with Selam for the past years, so we’re really pleased she’s now completed her doctorate studies and we look forward to continue to working and collaborating with her once she’s back in her full time role in the College of Health Sciences at Mekelle University (Ethiopia), where she will be the first female professor with a PhD degree.
