We have begun to design a virtual classroom for poor under resourced schools in South Africa and because kids don't have access to computers we are using feature phones to carry this platform. We can share the research.

Part of the problem with wearable tech, though, is its size. A Smart watch might be a great way to log your attendance and then link you up to the resources from that lecture, but you'd still want a tablet or laptop to read any text on. Would it be simpler to just create an app that does this?
