  • So what are our deliverables?

    Well first of all we have a Geo Location database, what is a geo-location database? In this case its a database which can hold the locations of geographical entities and relationships between them. For example storing the location of a department, or a pub etc

    You'll hear the the term LBS more and more in the coming years as its fast becoming a buzz word in mobile computing.
    So what this means is that we can create services which are relevant to the user's current location, for example "finding the route to my next lecture" or "which library is nearest, which also has this book I want?"

    Next we have demonstration mobile applications, i.e. services we can provide which would be useful to people on the move. e.g. give me a list of Oxford (or x university) Podcasts and let me download one

    And lastly we are to provide national guidelines on integration of mobile devices into higher/further educational institutes.

  • What I mean is in the past, if you were to support some mobile devices, you generally spoke of making sure an institution’s email system worked on a certain type of phone.

    This is becoming less and less of a problem, as manufacturers have finally realised that everyone would like access to this sort of tech without being tied to a large organisation. To this extent, most major
