Abstract

Studies show that current modes of psychoeducation (PE) cannot be availed of by a substantial population of those in need. Mobile health technologies have great potential to serve such populations. However converting PE to mobile platforms is challenging. We present a methodology for this purpose based on existing learning styles theory, and developed PE apps successfully, using it. Conclusion: Useful PE apps can be developed easily using the proposed method.
