A Mobile App Design Model with Offline Support for the Botswana Open University Student Management System
Botswana is a developing country in Southern Africa with approximately 64% of the population in urban areas. The o ther remaining population suffers poor services in remote regions such as unstable power supply, internet connectivity and other services. Botswana Open University (BOU) is an Open and Distance Learning (ODL) inst itution which aims at improving access to education especially to marginalised regions. As an effort to mitigate such challenges, we propose a Mobile App Model with Offline Support. The design model will enable development of a mobile app with offline supp ort to be used in the marginalised regions of Botswana for the BOU Student Management System. // Paper ID 125
