By Tech Change on April 4, 2016


Looking to launch a health education campaign, survey youth about issues in their community, or poll school teachers and receive reporting data? RapidPro might be the right tool for you!

RapidPro is a powerful tool that allows you to connect directly with a user on their mobile phone over SMS, voice, or social media without the help of a software developer, making it easy to adapt for different contexts and needs.

This free on-demand course was developed by UNICEF Innovation and TechChange to build the capacity necessary to successfully design, deploy, and scale SMS, IVR, and social media-based interactions using RapidPro. It is divided into two modules and designed to be taken in 1-1.5 hours at your own pace from anywhere in the world.
