    Sukums' presented on the level of baseline knowledge on computer usage and knowledge in parts of Tanzania and Ghana. While there were significant numbers of people that knew how to use computers, the study showed it would be necessary to give training and on-going instruction for future programs that involve computers. Freytsis' work with Maternal Concept Lab (MCL) showed how mHealth technologies can transform work in the rural communities, allowing for better data collection and the streamlining to aggregate data. Mitchell informed session participants on her work in Bangladesh with the Bangladesh Knowledge Management Initiative (BKMI) which created an e-toolkit with eight low-literacy lessons directed at and for CHWs. The toolkits were not only for training, but for CHWs to bring to clients in the field. Shaikh's described work in India focused on e-learning in rural areas, which aimed to bring resources to both practitioners and clients via mobile and online resources.
