In the first instance, a school or institution may provide, sell, or direct students to purchase a particular mobile device, for example, an Apple iPhone, for the purpose of study.  In cases where devices are loaned to students on a temporary basis, students generally have very little time to develop proficiency or fluency in the use of the device.  Leonard Low.

M-Learning Decisions: Web App or Native App?

mLearning is Good

think this is a pretty big development for mobile learning because it allows mobile learning content developers to target a single platform – the Web. But the newer WebKit based browsers are so capable that many people can’t tell the difference between a well developed mobile web application and a native application (with the exception for gaming and 3D graphics where native applications still have a pretty big performance edge). However, not as many departments have the sophisticated skills needed to develop–and debug–native applications.

What to take into account when developing online courses for learners in low resource settings

Ignatia Webs

The last two years I have been co-developing a course called eSCART (electronic Short Course in Antiretroviral Therapy), a course that is organized by the Institute of Tropical Medicine. So some of my networking colleagues asked me to share what we took into account when developing the course and especially how human respect was weaved into the fabric of the course. This presentation will also be given live on Friday 2nd October 2009, at the eLearning Guild's Online Forum numbered 401. Or at least I see it as a success. Looking forward to any comments you might have.

Adobe’s Mobile Packager: Flash on your mobile

But each time we make it easier for mobile content developers to reach their mobile learners, we gain a victory. Those of you who know me know that I’ve been excited about Flash for mobile devices for a long time. Ever since the first announcements of Flash Lite in 2005/2006, I’ve been studying and working on ways to port the most ubiquitous rich web technology to the mobile space. My expiriments with Mode2Tech lead to my first mobile application, called Burst , which is currently in version 2 and I think it has some valuable applications. Well, good news!
