Rapid Prototyping For Mobile Learning Applications – III

Upside Learning

In this, my last post in the series (continuing from Part I and Part II ), I explore what questions we’ve been asking when considering rapid prototyping tools (not just purely for mobile applications) and what we’ve learnt from it. You’ll certainly want to ask some questions before investing a rapid prototyping tool for mobile applications. Lastly, a prototype doesn’t really need to include every bell and whistle the application might possibly have. Here’s a link to some interesting tools you might consider using when prototyping for the iPhone or iPod Touch – [link].

The first Web2.0, comprehensive iPhone education app?

uLearning Blog

One common problem for educators seeking to use the iPhone or iPod touch in their learning environment is the fact that the most common uses of the devices for things such as taking attendance, voice recording or interfacing with learning management systems (such as Moodle) require constant exiting and switching between several different apps. Excessive app-switching will also increase the number of applications accessing the device memory, resulting in a slower operational and response time. Grade and attendance data seems to be trapped within the application.
