CSR in South Africa 2012
University of the Western Cape (UWC) and Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) successfully developed an eLearning environment for Community Health Workers (CHW) of the HOPE Cape Town Association.
Senior academicians from both universities guided students during the week in a process culminating in an 'eLearning Framework for HOPE'. From 21-25 May, a delegation from HNU comprising 14 students and 4 professors, as well as 6 students and 2 professors from UWC Economic and Management Sciences Faculty, formed joint project groups to research prerequisites and design a mobile course framework for Community Health Workers. As a scientific basis, they created a six layered model of learning integrating the learning styles and conditions of the target group, as well as the technical and organisational circumstances. In interviews and usability tests the user's needs, learning circumstances, previous knowledge, as well as ICT skills and interaction with the content and design of the courses, were analysed. The outcome was benchmarked with existing initiatives of other South African and international organizations for similar target groups.
