App making waves in ICT

The first and only Ojibway app available on the Apple platform is making waves in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry. With over 3000 downloads in its first couple months, the Ojibway People and Language app is gaining in popularity and even has its own fan following.

“We get at least 10 to 15 requests a week from the public to include features, new languages, other words and phrases and games. We just cant keep up. We need to start training more youth to create these apps and mobile tools.” – Ogoki Learning Systems Inc.

A recent story published in the “ICT Best Practices in Rural, Remote & Aboriginal Communities” is telling the full story on how our mobile app made it in a field of over 500,000 apps.

Ogoki Learning Systems Inc. is currently looking for partners in delivering specialized education and training to First Nation communities that will teach the youth how to program and create apps for the Apple iPhone or iPad.
