Google Wave and Mobile Learning

mLearnopedia on Blogspot

I have been experimenting with Google Wave and so far am pleased with what I see. I am not certain how much this will be used for mobile learning, but was pleasantly surprised that it works on the iPhone (although there is a warning that that browser is not supported.) It can tend to be a little slow, but usable. Here are a couple screen shots from my iPhone. Hope to see you there.

The voice mail web resource Grandcentral is now Google Voice , and there have been some big improvements. Google Voice is still in private beta (you can request an account), but fortunately I have been able to use my old Grandcentral account in Google Voice. After a couple weeks of using it, what I find useful about Google Voice over other uber voice mail systems is that you get a unique local phone number (thus not having to give out your personal cell phones or landline number). nice record of all group converstaion can be captured in Google Voice.

Google Mobile Books reviewed

Google Books is now available for mobile phones. Since I was not familiar with Google Books I was also not aware that the selection is very slim to say the least. The menu is ok as well and a neat feature is that when you return to the Google Books mobile page, you can keep reading where you left off. All in all, Google Mobile books is a good start, but because of a serious lack of content nothing exciting.
