GCFLearnFree.org Offers a New Mobile Version
GCFLearnFree.org, the FREE computer, math, literacy and life skills training site, has launched a new mobile website: http://m.gcflearnfree.org. This alternative version of the website is optimized for use on mobile platforms. Like many mobile sites, http://m.gcflearnfree.org is a pared down version of the full site for speed of download and ease of navigation on various mobile phones.
The content of the mobile site focuses on the popular tutorials and topics available on the full site; however due to limitations of various mobile platforms, some interactives and videos may not be available. The textual content and informational graphics will be there to provide users with a quality, educational experience.
GCFLearnFree.org has also released two apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch. These apps are free and available for download through iTunes. The first to be released is GCF Vocabulary Videos, taken from the site’s literacy training. Second to be released is GCF Word 2010 Tutorial. Additional apps will be coming soon and they will also be adapted for android smart phones.
The goal for GCFLearnFree.org’s mobile site and the apps is to provide free access to technology, reading and math tutorials even more readily, no matter the location of the learner. As mobile phone use continues to spread rapidly around the world, providing access to GCFLearnFree.org’s resources through a mobile site will allow the organization to share content with even more learners globally.
According to the International Telecommunications Union, worldwide Internet users surpassed the two billion mark in 2010. While high speed Internet is out of reach for many people in low-income countries, mobile phone use is spreading rapidly with mobile networks now available to over 90% of the world’s population. Therefore, the largest growth of new Internet users is from developing countries as 143 countries now offer 3G services.
GCFLearnFree.org has been a leading provider of free online computer, technology and life skills training since 1999. GCFLearnFree.org is supported by the Goodwill Community Foundation whose mission is “to create and provide education, employment and life enrichment opportunities for people who desire to improve the quality of their lives.”
