    39. 39.

    40. 40. AUSTRALIA <ul><li>Current mLearning initiatives within the education and training sector of Australia are characterised by fragmentation. Several universities and education faculty staff have pockets of research, initiatives and enthusiasm; however their work is essentially focused on the Higher Education sector, providing limited awareness of research outcomes or benefit to K-12, VET or life-long-learning developments. </li></ul><ul><li>The Australian Government has taken no significant interest in developing or optimizing networks or mobile systems to support mLearning. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    41. 41. CANADA <ul><li>In Canada, the first short experiment took place in 2001, conducted at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and using PDAs.  Since then, different universities have been experimenting with podcasting of lectures. </li></ul><ul><li>Athabasca University, which hosted the International Mobile Learning Conference in 2006, is leading in mobile learning research where it has created a mobile-enabled digital reading room with materials accessible using a variety of different mobile devices. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    42. 42. CHINA <ul><li>China is not yet the country of mobile learners, but it has all the potentials to incorporate mlearning into mainstream education in the future. The mobile telecommunication sector is rapidly growing, just like the rate of internet access within the population. The coastal and the special administration areas are very well developed, but the great inland territories still need tremendous amount of infrastructural investment. There are several companies, universities, research institutions active on the field of ICT supported learning, providing a good basis for valuable research activities in mobile learning. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    43. 43. INDIA <ul><li>Companies in India are receiving contracts for the development of mobile learning materials from institutions in Europe and in America. Two examples of these mobile learning development companies are given here: ZMQ Software Development Systems and Aptara. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    44. 44. JAPAN <ul><li>Japanese researchers use the concepts ‘pervasive learning’ and ‘ubiquitous learning’ to emphasise that mobile devices often are applied in learning situations taking place at a place directly related to the object of learning. Often, mobile learning is organised as collaborative learning, focusing on sharing knowledge and social knowledge building. </li></ul><ul><li>There is high government attention to develop Japan into an ubiquitous learning society where mobile devices are widely used for increasing welfare and life-long learning for all. There are some universities specifically working on the development of solutions for mobile learning: Tokushima University, University of Tokya, Oita University and Kobe University. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    45. 45. REPUBLIC OF KOREA <ul><li>The Republic of Korea is in the forefront in Asia and in the world in adopting new technology for learning. For instance, it has been far ahead of Japan in introducing broadband access in the homes. The Korean government has actively tried to influence the development of Korea into an ubiquitous learning society. There are examples of mobile learning activities on all educational levels. </li></ul><ul><li>The Ministry of Education has including mobile learning as one section of the nation-wide educational software context. Korean universities encourage the development of Internet learning that uses mobile technology and both elementary and secondary schools use mobile technology in learning. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    46. 46. SOUTH AFRICA <ul><li>Work at the University of Pretoria and at Tshwane University of Technology gave South Africa a leadership role in the field of mobile learning which has now been built on by other institutions in the country. </li></ul><ul><li>The University of Pretoria work provided mobile learning for students enrolled in a Post-graduate Diploma in Education who were all teachers in rural schools in South Africa. These students had no access to email or to e-learning but all had mobile phones which were used successfully by the University in their education. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    47. 47. TAIWAN <ul><li>Taiwan is a small island, but very strong when it comes to mobile learning. The country already has a very good mobile telecommunication infrastructure, which is under continuous development due to the strong commitment of the government. </li></ul><ul><li>Schools and universities are picking up mobile educational services based on the highly developed telecommunication infrastructure. But not only the usage of these services is remarkable in Taiwan, but also the amount of research activities, carried out by various universities and research organisations. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
    48. 48. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA <ul><li>In a number of US universities the web portals are now able to send administrative messages to their students, using new channels of communication based on mobile devices (ipods, mobile phones, smart phones, PDAs, etc). </li></ul><ul><li>One of the main strategies for the development of the m-learning field in Universities seems to be based on the availability of devices for students free of charge. The Universities are offering iPods, MP3 readers, PDAs or other recent devices to their students. Those devices have already pre-loaded contents with university based information and then students can use them to download other files from the University Library, or from the university portals, or from the teachers’ podcasts. </li></ul>28.05.2008 Conference: NoEL - Netværk om eLæring, Denmark
