We are a consortium of Tanzanian and Irish organizations who, over a 5-year period, have been laying the groundwork for establishing an e-Learning platform in Tanzania. The platform will contribute to scaling up health workers’ access to CPD courses, and provide opportunities for national and international virtual mentoring and coaching. Courses will be designed to support inter-professional communication and collaboration, with a clear focus on applying new knowledge and skills in the workplace.

Why we believe we will succeed:
• Digital transformation has already started and will expand through achievement of Target 9C of the SDGs .
• An e-Learning Platform is arguably the most cost-effective and sustainable option for scaling up CPD opportunities for health workers in Tanzania.
• The e-Learning platform initiative is built on a foundation of collaboration and we are commited to strengthening our reach and increasing impact through a locally-owned solution which is open to partnering with other organizations who can use the platform infrastructure for courses based on approved knowledge products.
• We know how to develop low-cost and localized Courses/MOOCs which are relevant to health workers’ needs.
• Digital literacy and learning literacy skills building programmes will be provided to ensure health workers know how to participate effectively in a mobile learning environment as self-directed learners.
• As CPD becomes compulsory, the e-Learning platform will be set up to assist health workers comply with their obligations.

Harnessing technological advances offers transformative solutions to persisting challenges. Mobile learning provides an equitable, affordable, and sustainable way to meet professionals’ CPD needs – allowing them to acquire new knowledge and skills, and to connect with their professional community for supportive feedback and group problem-solving, regardless of their geographical location or gender.
