Learning by Ear via mobile in Tanzania
DW is now offering its distance-education program Learning by Ear to listeners in Tanzania via mobile phone following a new agreement with Vodacom Tanzania – the country’s largest mobile provider with more than 10 million customers.
By using the “Music Radio” program, Vodacom customers now have access to all of the Learning by Ear episodes as audio on demand – on all types of mobile phones. They just need to call a predetermined Vodacom number to tune in – practically turning their mobile into a remote control. No download is necessary.
Learning by Ear, Deutsche Welle’s multimedia distance-learning program, examines the challenges that young Africans face and engages listeners in an informative and entertaining way. The programming is a lively mix of in-depth reports, radio dramas and feature stories that will provide listeners with an opportunity to get the necessary skills to succeed in Africa today and to discover a whole new world of knowledge. Episodes are currently being broadcast by more than 270 partners in Africa.
