Abstract: Dr Math is a mobile tutoring system which has been running in South Africa for three years. It links primary and secondary school pupils to tutors in mathematics. The pupils use the popular Mxit chat client on their cell phones. The tutors use full size computer work stations connected to the internet. Dr Math has grown from strength to strength with over 6000 pupils having been assisted with mathematics homework. It was time, however, to redesign and rewrite Dr Math to use a more scalable enterprise architecture. This paper describes the redesign and rewrite of Dr Math to use the Mobicents telecommunications platform under Jboss (the open source J2EE application server). This new framework is called C³TO: Chatter Call Centre/Tutoring Online.
