What I Learnt About Mobile Learning Design
FEBRUARY 25, 2011
Mobile hardware has its own limitations and hence we need to adhere to some critical design conventions in order to make our mobile applications a success. Any mobile learning solution that we design needs to be easy to use even when our target audience is on the move. That means that our designs need to be graphically light. Limitations. Additional Resources. Mobile Usability.

Five Practical Mobile Learning Tips

Ask if you want to push and track content – that means the use of some form of media; these could be simple presentations, animations to more sophisticated simulation/games designed to push content. Also, during the design try to anticipate how the tool/application can degrade gracefully continuing to offer functionality based on the device its being run on. Content pull?
7 reasons why the new Articulate Storyline is a Game-Changer for eLearning
MAY 2, 2012
It was almost like using a beautifully designed iPad app. If there’s one thing Articulate knows is helping customers design eLearning and it shows in the way they developed Storyline. Storyline approaches making software simulations in a whole new ways as compared to Adobe Captivate. Storyline also comes with a feature called Action Fine-tuning, which allows you to go back and make fine adjustment to your software simulations. First, let me start by congratulating everyone who works for Articulate for the launch of Storyline. But of course, there’s a lot more. 2.

Articulate Storyline vs. Adobe Captivate 6 for iPad Publishing [FAQ]
JULY 7, 2012
First off I think this question is fairly shortsighted because I believe real multi-screen design and deployment of “ learning ” should go beyond just publishing for iPad consumption. This is an interesting question to answer for so many reasons. In other words, I don’t believe that you can call having an iPad-only solution a real mLearning strategy. Answer to this FAQ.

But as designers and developers of mobile learning, we can use barcodes to aid students in finding information, and there are countless other uses for barcodes and QR codes. You could place barcodes on items in the physical world, which would guide learners through an immersive simulation or guided tour. Google is now offering a barcode reader on the Android Mobile Platform, which in itself is not a big triumph for mobile learning, but it’s just the latest company to offer the capability as part of it’s mobile platform.

Rapid Prototyping For Mobile Learning Applications – II
AUGUST 19, 2010
As I mentioned in my last post about Rapid Prototyping mobile apps , I’ll be discussing levels of fidelity and how you could determine which level works for your mobile application design project. The term ‘fidelity’ is also commonly used in simulations and means essentially the same thing. This can also be a drawback as attention is focused around the visual design of the app, and the functional and content aspects may get side-tracked. In the initial iterations of the design cycle, the fidelity need not be pixel perfect.
