Worldreader phone app aims to widen access to books in Africa

The African division of the Cambridge University Press recently partnered with NGO digital book provider Worldreader to showcase a fresh approach to reducing illiteracy across the African continent.

Technology adoption has made education more accessible in developing countries. The special Worldreader app is doing exactly that. It allows users to access a rich digital library without having to pay extra.

The best feature of this system is its accessibility. People with a simple feature phone equipped with a Java-enabled browser can access it. Moreover, the app will be made available to users via the user-friendly biNu cloud platform – which recently opened its office in Cape Town.

Will this technology change the dynamics of education in Africa?
