More on Standards for M-Learning…

1 09 2006

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.

A recent plea for best-practice standards in mobile technologies, written as an open letter to the Mobile Industry: http://www.littlespringsdesign.com/blog/2006/09/01/mobile-browser-user-experience/

[…] All of the midlets work on mobile phones supporting Java 2 Mobile Edition (J2ME) with a screen resolution greater than 128×96 pixels (which, by my recent research, includes the vast majority of mobile phones sold in Australia within the last two years).  Technically, the implementation aligns favourably with best practices in mobile application design.

Mobile Learning » (Open) Standards for Mobile Learning

[…] I’ve already submitted my research recommendations for Australian Mobile Learning Standards (for which I was selected as Lead Researcher last year), so it’s unfortunate that this article on Mobile 2.0, wasn’t written earlier, as it summarises beautifully some of the considerations that were foremost in my mind when I was writing my recommendations and would have provided some excellent quotes: Open Applications Leverage Open Standards […]
