  • 1. HOW TO DESIGN A MOBILE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT Recommendations based on student perceptions CSEDU 2014 1 / 21 Pablo Rebaque-Rivas prebaque@uoc.edu Community Initiatives (Office of Learning Technologies) Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC)
  • 2. Universitat Oberta de Catalunya  E-learning university  Virtual campus and virtual classrooms  Digital contents in different formats  Continuous assessment  Combine their studies with other activities, in particularly their jobs CSEDU 2014 2 / 21
  • 3. Virtual campus on mobile devices CSEDU 2014 3 / 21
  • 4. Virtual campus on mobile devices Webmail Virtual classrooms Agenda Secretary’s office CSEDU 2014 4 / 21
  • 5. Virtual campus on mobile devices CSEDU 2014 5 / 21
  • 6. CSEDU 2014 6 / 21 Adaptation of the UOC Virtual Campus for mobile browsers A native app of the Virtual Campus A native e-mail client app Mobile developments and UCD User-centered design
  • 7. The user-student  What do students want to find?  Adapted for mobile browsers, a native app, or both?  A single app or different apps? ? CSEDU 2014 7 / 21
  • 8. UOC case study Focus group with students UOC mobile developments currently available Students’ patterns of use and connection habits Possible improvements and potential developments in the future    CSEDU 2014 8 / 21

  • 11.  Uses of the Virtual Campus  to get Information and to “work”  Laptops or desktop computers  information and working  Smartphones  less frequent  daily updates  communication areas of the Virtual Campus  Tablets  to view/read documents Students’ patterns of use and connection habits CSEDU 2014 11 / 21
  • 12. Students’ patterns of use and connection habits  Uses of the Virtual Campus  to get Information and to “work”  Laptops or desktop computers  information and working  Smartphones  less frequent  daily updates  communication areas of the Virtual Campus  Tablets  to view/read documents  …not conclusive, they were not aware of the mobile developments… CSEDU 2014 12 / 21
  • 13. The Virtual Campus for mobile browsers CSEDU 2014 13 / 21
  • 14. The Virtual Campus for mobile browsers  Little awareness  It contains the relevant information for connections from a mobile device  They missed adapted sections for Secretary’s Office and Tutor  It is only necessary to adapt those sections they were most likely to connect to from a mobile device CSEDU 2014 14 / 21
  • 15. The Virtual Campus native app CSEDU 2014 15 / 21
  • 16. The Virtual Campus native app  Little awareness  It only contains the relevant information for connections from a mobile device  Modern, innovative and functional  They missed adapted sections for Secretary’s Office and Tutor CSEDU 2014 16 / 21
  • 17. The e-mail client app CSEDU 2014 17 / 21
  • 18. The e-mail client app  Quick solution for accessing their UOC e- mail  Too specific and not sufficiently comprehensive  Better all the information in a single app  Different tools creates a degree of uncertainty CSEDU 2014 18 / 21
  • 19. Possible improvements and potential developments in the future  The native app, the most likely to be used  Suggested functions  file storage and sharing system  instant messaging tool  Conventional computers and mobile devices will be combined  Tablets in the near future  an active part of their studies and the main device for connecting to the VC  The ideal solution would be an offer of the services that are fully functional via mobile devices CSEDU 2014 19 / 21
  • 20. Some conclusions  The mobile developments answer to their current connection needs  The native app is preferred among the other developments  a single tool only for the most relevant services  Mobile developments portray the UOC as a modern, innovative university  Mobile learning environment is already an integral part of students’ day-to-day activities  Universities should provide user-driven online learning environments to their students CSEDU 2014 20 / 21
  • 21. Some recommendations  A single native app, the best option  What the student-user requests, what it should be found in mobile developments  Devices and their contexts of use  Document management function  Instant messaging function  Virtual Campus app = a good impression CSEDU 2014 21 / 21
