Encompass Digital Media, working closely with the BBC and DRM consortium members, has delivered maths lessons to schools in The Gambia using long-distance DRM digital radio. This makes a compelling case for the ongoing use of long-distance digital radio in education, particularly where no internet access is available. Applications include solo study and group learning and could apply to a number of fields such as core curriculum, religious education, further and higher education, and technical training. Graphic elements and supporting text materials are transmitted by radio alongside an audio programme. Receivers are supplied as part of the project, removing barriers to entry caused by cost or access to technology.
