dc.description.abstract According to the Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS6) conducted between October 2012 and October 2013, 69.6% of adults in the country are literate .Initially, being literate meant to be able to read and write, but today it is not only about reading and writing but being able to fully utilize these skills to solve problems. Literacy should focus on how the learner can apply whatever they learn in their daily life activities. The busy schedule of Adesua Ye students does not allow them to come for adult literacy classes. From interviewing Adesua Ye students and random adults, all they needed from the adult literacy program is the ability to help their children with their assignments and interact with their clients. This paper seeks to explore how technology can be used to improve Adult literacy. This way, they would not have to come to class every single day of the week. However, classes would not be cut off completely because of the high rate of e-learning drop-out. en_US
