I recently accepted the role of Lead Researcher for the E-Standards Experts Group (EEG) project to research and document a set of technical standards for (digital) Mobile Learning, as part of a broader project to support national best practice, interoperability and compatibility in flexible learning.
- Over the next few weeks, I’ll be performing a literature review of existing mobile learning tools, processes, and standards. I’ll also be setting up contacts with key stakeholders, m-learning experts and industry representatives towards the next phase of research.
- From mid-September to early October, I’ll be liaising with key contacts to determine trends in digital mobility, recommended approaches to m-learning, and metrics for m-learning and mobile device use across Australia. The involvement of industry players such as mobile product and service providers could help me to determine likely trends for mobile tools that could support m-learning; hopefully the prospect of being involved in setting national standards for m-learning technology will make industry players keener to engage in dialogue than they have been when I’ve contacted them in the past.
- The final report will be published in December.
I’ll be considering both published and primary sources in my evaluation and recommendation of standards for enabling and sustaining mobile learning in Australia.
If you’d like to be involved in this national effort to recommend national standards for digital m-learning, please contact me. I will be gratefully acknowledging contributors and collaborators on this blog at the completion of the project.
