Mobile Learning

Mobile Learning: “The mobile revolution is finally here. Wherever one looks, the evidence of mobile penetration and adoption is irrefutable: cell phones, PDAs (personal digital assistants), MP3 players, portable game devices, handhelds, tablets, and laptops abound. No demographic is immune from this phenomenon. From toddlers to seniors, people are increasingly connected and are digitally communicating with each other in ways that would have been impossible to imagine only a few years ago.”
Comment: Learning designers (and institutions as a whole) need to pay close attention to the mobile learning trend. Content is increasingly being accessed with mobile devices. Designing only for a browser limits many learning opportunities. Bill Gates has thoughts on mobile content access as well.
