This innovative and interactive resource, is the first in a series under development by IWTC in partnership with Media One, Kampala and IDRC/Acacia Project, Nairobi. The "computer book" as the narrator refers to it, is for rural African women entrepreneurs who have access to a computer through a telecentre but no experience in using one. The computer book is available online for direct use, free of charge, by those who have access to an internet connection and can also be obtained on CD-ROM.
The “computer book” is made up of three main sections plus an introduction and uses a visual format with audio narration for ease of access by those with minimal or no education. The sections are as follows:
- Introduction – explains the computer and how to use it, explains the purpose of the “computer book” and how to navigate through it using the navigational tools.
- Starting with what we have – recognition of the resources women have and thinking of new ideas for using what they have.
- Making money from a product or service – guidance on choosing a product or service, pricing the product or service, getting the product to the customer and promoting the product or service
- Expanding our opportunities – exploring new ways of making money, diversifying the current business and how to find the money needed.
The programme is particularly innovative and practical as it uses an interactive learning process to promote problem-solving, introduce new ideas and use experience gained from other successful small-business learning materials. The real life situations and identification of resources within Uganda provide a good example for adaptation to the local situation. The CD-ROM is available in English and Luganda and the online version can be accessed in either language.
