COVID-19 Ethiopia -Health Worker Training Platform

Background
COVID-19 Ethiopia is a health worker learning/training platform supported by the Community Health Academy-Last Mile Health using the OppiaMobile app technology.

Objective
To reach health workers with appropriate, up-to-date and multimedia aided COVID-19 information and training content on mobile devices accessed anywhere, anytime.
One of the major limiting factors to a timely COVID-19 response is the need for social distancing which prevents traditional capacity building efforts such as face-to-face training. COVID-19 Ethiopia training platform has been developed to address this need in a timely manner.
What is it?
OppiaMobile is an open source mobile learning platform specially designed for delivering learning content such as multimedia and quizzes in low-resource settings. Course content can be developed in Moodle and then exported to run offline on the OppiaMobile Android app.

Who is the Target Audience?
Frontline health workers including; nurses, health officers, physicians, volunteers working in health facilities and other health service delivery points set up for COVID-19 across all 11 regions of Ethiopia.

How Does It Work?
Once COVID-19 Ethiopia is downloaded onto a smart phone or tablet, the training content is readily available for use offline. Users earn points for engagement with the course content, and badges when they complete a course. When a course is updated, users are automatically notified that a new version is available, so they can keep their course content up-to-date.
