Ebola IVR mLearning Course for Health Workers

By Kate Tulenko | 2014

IntraHealth International has developed an Ebola interactive voice response (IVR) course. These messages were developed based on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Ebola Guidelines for Health Workers. The course is available for general use and modification under a creative commons license. We recommend adapting the course to meet national guidelines and language. The IVR course is especially useful for illiterate or semi-literate community health workers and for health workers who speak minority languages for which it can be difficult to find sufficient numbers of qualified face-to-face trainers. The course below is a series of essential Ebola-related questions and answers that are voice recorded and sent daily to health workers via standard mobile phones. After listening to the recorded question, the health worker presses the number of the answer s/he believes to be correct and then hears the recorded correct answer.
