M-Learning/Mobile Learning is a vast domain of training methodology using mobiles and cell phones similar to the e-learning where the medium is normally a desktop or web access over a PC. If we notice ground reality of the usage of M-Learning, it is limited to some state of the art course ware with aim to provide mini-chunks of learning materials while the user is on the go. Mostly it is limited to mini m-book, glossary, mini test/assessment modules with MCQ type questions. Where as the e-learning is widely used in the software training industry and the screencasts /software screen simulations are nearly synonymous with the e-learning term itself it fails utterly in the M-learning domain due to the small screen size pf the mobile devices where the bigger resolution screens casts of the desktop/web applications are nearly impossible to display with the usable tag attached to it.
The scope of the proposed solution to this consists of the three major elements:
mechanism to make the screencasts of 800 x 600 px resolutions usable in small device screen resolution , typically 240 px X 320 px
Provide mechanism to reuse existing screen casts if possible
Provide a way to use the same screencast video file for both the devices (PC and mobile) so that it will make deployer’s life easy for not having to store 2 versions of the same screencast.
