25+ mLearning Tools in 60 Minutes - DevLearn 2010

8,368

Published on

A variety of mLearning platforms, development tools, and applications has emerged in recent years. It’s often difficult to know what’s available without doing dedicated research (and project timelines don’t always allow for research!).

This presentation shows 25+ different mLearning tools (such as systems, development tools, emulators, assessment tools, etc.) along with a brief description and URL for each.

Audience: Novice to intermediate level participants with a general understanding of mLearning and the situations when or where it can be used.

  • So many platforms! The important thing is to get a general grasp on each of them; you don’t need to be an expert on each. Plus, know your audience. What devices are they using?
  • Applications offer greater possibilities and you can use native functionality for that device (ex. GPS, camera, bluetooth, gestures, etc.).

    Mobile web sites can be viewed on more devices and they are easy to build, but they offer less functionality.

    So, consider the following for your project:
    Audience
    Learning materials
    Functionality / media required (ex. GPS, camera, gestures, etc.)
    LMS integration?
    Budget
    Security

    And then decide…
  • For each tool, we’ll see a screenshot and a brief description.
