Mobile Learning Design

Student using tablet

From universities developing smartphone apps to deliver courses to students, to training managers in business utilising technology as a convenient and accessible way of imparting knowledge; educators are increasingly implementing mobile devices in learning. We have assisted with and evaluated the E-Learning Award-nominated Security, Conflict, and International Development Masters course iPad and App solution, and are currently guiding the charity Theatre for a Change to implement a smartphone-based mobile health education solution in African countries. This course will help you choose the pedagogical and technical approach that is best for your organisation and will help you sketch an implementation pathway with additional consultative help to launch your mobile-enabled course.
