The Australian Government is paying for a fibre optic cable to the 
Solomon Islands. So the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has 
asked for ideas how this could help young people in the Solomon Islands 
with skills and education. The winning idea in the Solomon Islands 
Technology for Development Challenge will receive up to $250,000 AUD for 
implementation, as part of Australia’s Cyber Cooperation Program. 

I have entered the Challenge with "Micro-credentials by Mobile Phone". 
This proposes m-Learning via Smart Phones, providing a vocational 
relevant credential, within months, rather than taking years.
