    • This paper reports a project working to improve distance education in Bangladesh by means of a low-cost, large-scale interactive learning environment using video, mobile phones, SMS-based tools administered in a Learning Management System, and innovative pedagogy based on the student-centred learning model. The paper addresses the question of, how to use existing mobile telephony technical infrastructure to create interactive learning environments which can reach the majority of the population, be able to include many thousand students, and be sustainable from a resource perspective including the operational model of institutions providing education. This question includes challenges relating to pedagogy and teaching methods, technical tools for learning and communication, and institutional arrangements. The paper addresses these challenges by the illustrative case of the Bangladesh Virtual Interactive Classroom testing the tools and ideas in course at Bangladesh Open University (BOU). We find that our tools are feasible and usable but also that sustainability requires meeting organizational and social challenges. This research contributes by providing the first LMS that can be fully used from standard mobile phones and by showing how to arrange low-cost distance tuition with only minimal ICT infrastructure, an example transferable to other developing countries.

    • We developed low-cost, effective ICT to improve distance education in Bangladesh, using video and SMS to implement innovative pedagogy and to create a large-scale interactive learning environment for students, hitherto not existing. We develop sustainable strategies for ICT use in education including curriculum development, teacher education for interactive learning, and a new business model. Being the first of its kind world-wide, the project will serve as a role model for how to arrange low-cost distance tuition requiring only minimal ICT infrastructure, an example providing valuable experiences transferable to other developing countries. The project addresses technical factors (development of interactive technology) as well as social ones (introducing and sustaining interactivity in education) and the business model for distance tuition (engaging local learning centres, telecommunication management).
