Example text

In much of the developing world, infrastructure is characterized by little or no internet bandwidth, unreliable and intermittent mains electricity and limited user expertise among others. This implies that the developing world context requires ICTD relevant tools. Majority of the tools explored are developed for user contexts in the developed world and thus do not represent the needs of academics and learners in the developing world. For instance in much of subSaharan Africa, despite the huge investments by universities on LMSs such as Blackboard and WebCT, the impact of their use has not been significant.

We also give an indication of whether a tool offers desktop authoring (DA), mobile authoring (MA), content distribution to mobile (DM), desktops (DD)or both (DMD) and use ?? for a lack of feature support. The second dimension explores the authoring techniques and development environments used; for example, some tools use single authoring (S) a technique used to create a single version of content for adaptation to any given end device, Multiple authoring (M) which involves creation of several content versions for the different consumer devices and Flexible authoring (F) which involves the creation of both single and multiple authored content versions [37].
