  • 3. the acquisition of any knowledge and skill through using mobile technology,
    anywhere, anytime, that results in an alteration in behavior.
    Any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies
  • 4. Objectives of using the Mobile Learning in DE
  • 5.
    • Content is adaptable to meet individual needs
    • 6. Improved communication and organization
    • 7. Easier access, Increases motivation
    • 8. Available wherever and whenever
    • 9. Be two way and multi-media
    • 10. Enhances knowledge
    • 11. No time constraints
    • 12. More independent
  • Features of the Mobile Learning
  • 13.
    • M-learning is collaborative.
    • 14. M-learning is engaging and fun.
    • 15. Enables knowledge building by learners in different contexts. 
    • 16. Enables learners to construct understandings. 
    • 17. M-learning is convenient, in the sense that it is accessible virtually from anywhere (class, taxi, …) 
    • 18. Mobile technology often changes the pattern of learning/work activity.
  • Advantages of the Mobile Learning
  • 19.
    • It is important to bring new technology into the classroom.
    • 20. It will be more light weight device compare to books, PCs.
    • 21. could be utilized as part of a learning approach which uses different types of activities (or a blended learning approach).
    • 22. can be a useful add-on tool for students with special needs. However, for SMS and MMS this might be dependent on the students’ specific disabilities or difficulties involved.
    • 23. Good IT support is needed.
    • 24. can be used as a ‘hook’ to re-engage disaffected youth.
  • Challenges of the Mobile Learning
  • 25. Technical challenges
    • Small Screen size
    • 26. Small keys size
    • 27. Limited Performance, in terms of processor capability, available memory, storage space and battery life.
    • 28. Slow Connectivity of the internet
    • 29. Left- to-right scrolling, web sites too big to see effectively on small screen
    • 30. Risk of theft, rain, breakability.
    Social and educational challenges

    E-book
    Mobile Learning using
    Simulation
    Podcasts
    Games
  • 35. SMS: Short Message Service allows users to send/receive messages between mobile phones (text messaging).
    MMS: Multimedia Messaging Service serves the same purpose as SMS but allows the inclusion of graphics.
    WAP: An international protocol that allows users to access the internet via their WAP enabled mobile phones.
    GPRS: An always on internet connection for mobile devices that provides greater speed of connection (171kb/s).
  • 36. Bluetooth: A short range wireless connection. This enables PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) to pass messages to and from other mobile devices.
    CAMs: Video cameras now embedded into mobile phone and PDAs.
    MP3s: Audio file format that efficiently compresses files and enables them to be shared.
  • 37. Concerns raised by researchers and distance students/tutors about the Mobile Learning
  • 38. Design
    Designing for mobile learning becomes a critical
    challenge. ‘How to enhance the experience without
    interfering with it’
    Evaluation
    How can we effectively measure learning in mobile
    environments?
  • 39. Case studies/examples
  • 40. Carnegie Mellon University Project
    Carnegie Mellon University today announced the expansion of its Mobile & Immersive Learning for Literacy in Emerging Economies (MILLEE) project, which will gauge the effectiveness of mobile phone-based games for teaching English lessons to students in rural India.
    Mobile Technology Applications in the Korean Higher Education
    “Mobile campus” has made students and faculty staff access authentic, updated information sources and communicate with each other anytime, and anywhere within the campus.
