DEPLOYMENT OF M-LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES: CASE OF BOTSWANA COLLEGE OF DISTANCE AND OPEN LEARNING (BOCODOL) IN BOTSWANA

J. Khengere

Botho College (BOTSWANA)
M-learning (Mobile learning) is a type of learning that takes place when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location and learning that takes place when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies. Recent developments in mobile technologies have offered the potential to support learners studying a variety of subjects, globally the development and adoption of M-learning are rapidly increasing but this is not the case with Botswana .
Botswana has a system called BOCODOL which is the process of learning where students attend on part time basis and after work since they could not do in normal time. Nevertheless, these students still fail to complete their part time, open learning and distance learning because of time and distance factors involved although they have the ambition of finishing their studies. Moreover, the government has put down a vision which stipulates that Botswana nation should be educated and well informed by the year 2016.
Botswana vision and student’s ambition to complete studies have prompted the researcher to present a paper that will assist the stakeholders to understand the nature of the challenges they are in and appreciate the way forward in order to achieve their goals.
