This paper explores the potential of interactive audio instruction (IAI) as a cost-effective strategy for improving the resiliency of education systems. It begins with a brief historical review of the evolution of IAI followed by a description of the fundamental characteristics of the approach. Prior assessments of the cost-effectiveness of IAI are then reviewed and updated, incorporating new options for development and implementation enabled by the evolution of information and communication technology (ICT). Finally, the paper explores the potential cost-effectiveness of IAI as part of a comprehensive strategy to enhance the resiliency of education systems and to promote the continuity of learning for all students.
