Access your PC from your mobile

Happily, because the service can be used from a mobile web browser, it doesn’t require any additional software to be installed on mobile phones, avoiding problems with phone hardware or carrier incompatibilities.

A product like this could be used to access a learner’s own “Personal Learning Environment” (PLE) of files and data on their own PC – like a mobile portfolio of learning.  Its built-in VOIP and chat tools could also provide a means of communicating with peers.
