Mobile Learning and WebCT

We’re currently engaging Mark Hallam from WebCT’s Professional Services to assist us with the transition to WebCT Vista/6. Of interest to this blog: the latest incarnation of the e-learning platform includes an Application Programming Interface, or “API” – a way of extending or customising the functionality of WebCT.

Among the possible extensions for WebCT: a calendar extension which sends reminders directly to students’ mobile phones (already developed in a proof-of-concept system); and RSS out of WebCT, potentially with mobile delivery.
