    • E-Learning Design Topic: Mobile Learning (M-Learning) Desmond Siregar (10729770) Joshua Harris (10715504) Jimmy Tseng (10730149)
    • Overview The Technology
      • The term M-Learning also known as Mobile Learning refers to the use of hand held devices such as PDA's, mobile phones, laptops and any other hand held information technology devices that may be used in teaching and learning. ( Harriman, 2009 )
    • Requirements
      • Access to Mobile Devices
      • Access to internet
      • Must have web applications e.g java, flash.
    • Benefits of M-learning
      • Interaction : Student interaction with instructors and among each other.
      • Portability : PDAs are lighter than books and enable the student to take notes or input data directly into the device regardless of location either typed, handwritten or using voice.
      • Collaborative : Enables several students work together on assignments even while at distant locations.
      • Engaging learners : The new generation likes mobile devices such as PDAs, phones and games devices.
      • Increase motivation : Owner ship of the hand held devices seems to increase commitment to using and learning from it.
      • Bridging of the digital divide : Since handhelds are more affordable than larger systems they are accessible to a larger percentage of the population.
      • Just-in-time learning : Increases work/learning performance and relevance to the learner.
    • Disadvantages
      • # Small screens of mobile phones and PDAs
      • # Limited storage capacities in PDAs
      • # Battery life/charge
      • # Lack of common operating system
      • # Lack of common hardware platform make it difficult to develop content for all.
      • # Less robust
      • # Still difficult to use moving graphics
      • # Limited potential for expansion with some devices
      • # Devices can become out of date quickly
      • # Wireless bandwidth is limited and may degrade with a larger number of users
    • Example of use (Case Study)
      • QAT (Question Answer Technology) which allows lecture notes to be downloaded onto the mobile device as well asking any questions with speaking to their device.
      • Benefit
      • *Makes the learning process quicker and easier
      • Disadvantage
      • *Limited storage capacities in PDAs
      The use of M-learning technologies in tertiary settings: Queensland University of Technology
    • Example of use (Case Study) Learning objects for mobile devices: A case study in the Actuarial Sciences degree
    • A bit of info
      • Java Midlets
    • Benefits
      • Cost effective
      • Accessibility
      • Size
      • Easy to use
    • Disadvantage/Challenges
      • Small memory
      • Small screen size
      • Battery life
      • Usefulness in other faculties
    • Recommendations
      • Test midlets in other faculties
      • Experiment with midlets sizes and storage
      • Access to immediate feedback
    • Example of use (Case Study)
      • Buildplan Group incorporating Occupational Health & Safety site induction training into individuals mobile-phone enabled PDA’s via handheld device application.
      Handheld Innovations in flexible learning
    • Buildplan Case Study
      • Handheld Resource –
    • Buildplan Case Study
      • Handheld Resource –
    • Buildplan Case Study
      • Handheld Resource –
    • Example of use (Case Study)
      • Benefits –
      • The technology has demonstrated the potential to save subcontractors
      • (and other visitors to the site) considerable onsite time by allowing them to
      • download and undertake the induction themselves.
      • Save site manager’s time through only having to sign-off a site visitor
      • upon the visitor’s successful completion of the induction, rather than having
      • to personally conduct the induction process themselves during a face-to-face
      • meeting with the site visitor.
    • Example of use (Case Study)
      • Disadvantages –
      • Difficulty to connect to server. Possibly because of black spots.
      • Application has to be suited to all mobile phones, may not be compatible with some.
