Project Title I-Iban
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Teaching methods have evolved from conventional to modern approaches such that include mobile learning which is highly applicable for teaching languages. I-Iban is a mobile application developed for learning Iban language; one of the most spoken languages in Sarawak. Currently, there is no locally produced mobile application to introduce this language to non- native speakers. This mobile application serves as a repository for Iban language that can be used to promote and preserve the language among younger generations. It is an interactive mobile application which includes multimedia elements such as audio, text, and images. It consists of three modules; vocabulary, dictionary and conversations, which incorporates pronunciations and spellings that will enrich their vocabularies and phrases. I- Iban is the first mobile application that is used to teach a native language. It can be used in classrooms for teaching Iban, in schools that offer Iban language. It can also be utilized for self-learning.
