A quick plug for the above which is a flexible part-time distance learning programme delivered entirely online using a combination of online tutorials, multimedia interactive learning materials, peer to-peer discussion and independent study. It looks very interesting. More details are here.

Claudia Pagliari tells me that the mHealth course will be available as a stand alone option or as part of a certificate of diploma track.
