Last week I was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas seeking mobile learning related tools and announcements. The biggest mobile news in my opinion was that of the Palm Pre.

Five Myths of Mobile Learning

mlearnopedia delicious

I’ve been occupied with writing a paper to promote the adoption of mobile learning amongst corporates and enterprises. While trawling through multiple web-links, a pattern of myths about mobile learning emerges. Devices lack in screen and key size and processing power - It’s said quite often that as compared to personal computers, mobile devices lack the large physical interface devices (keyboard, monitor, mouse, printer…) that personal computers provide. Today’s devices have large usable screens, and full QWERTY keyboards. Mobile content is expensive!
