What I Learnt About Mobile Learning Design

Upside Learning

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.

The Future Of Learning Design

Rapid Prototyping For Mobile Learning Applications – II

Upside Learning

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.

Another creative option is to have a conference "simulation" or "debate" for homework. Multiple Students could call in at a designated time and debate or discuss a topical issue using the conference tool. Or in a simulation mode, students could create a "constitutional convention" by taking on different figures from the revolutionary time period and debate what should be in the constitution. There is a great new web2.0 for Teleconferecing called Free Conference Pro !
